That’s right, Gennaro Gattuso is the lowest paid manager in Serie A.

That is according to a new report coming out of Football Italia, where the AC Milan legend is reportedly on the same terms as his Primavera contract.

The former capitano had been in charge of the youth team, but stepped up to replace Vincenzo Montella in charge of the first team.

These details from the report are particularly noteworthy-

However, Gazzetta dello Sport reports that he’s coaching the Rossoneri first team on the same terms as the youth team, meaning he earns €120,000 per season.

That makes him the lowest-paid Coach in Serie A, with Fabio Pecchia at Verona in 19th on €250,000 per season.

Our former manager Vincenzo Montella, now at Sevilla over in Spain, reportedly made 3 Million Euros before getting the axe.

The development to follow now is if and when there will be contract negotiations with Rino, who has Milan performing well in 7th place on 38 points after the disastrous spell under Montella.

Still, the report is surprising with Milan being a major worldwide player in both notoriety and success over the last decade. You would think a pay bump would be something Rino did before taking the first team squad.

We’ll continue to keep you updated on this story as there are more developments.
