Gattuso said he would play on, although he does not yet know where. "The time has come to go my own way and leave space (in the squad) for others," said Gattuso. "It's only a goodbye, I will do one year somwehere else and then we will see. I don't know where I will play yet. I don't have any offers at the moment, but I'll speak tomorrow (Saturday) in a press conference."


Have to admit, on a personal level, this one hurts the most...

After Maldini, it was Rino who I most gravitated towards. Never fast enough, never skilled enough, never strong enough, but with the heart of a Lion anything is possible. ANYTHING. For provincial pub player to multiple scudetto, multiple CL and WC winner, their has never been a player easier to love than Rino Gattuso. The way he owned CRON in his prime, the way he celebrated goals, and the way he gave his all even in defeat he is a model player and a model person. Some complain that Milan lack technical skill, but at the end of the day, what Milan lack is the HEART to be Champions, the heart from player's like Gennaro Gattuso. It wasn't the end I wanted, nor was it the end he wanted, but it is the end no less. Best of luck to a Milan legend...

The downfall of getting older is that you have to say goodbye to your sporting heroes...
