Rossoneri legend Ruud Gullit hopes that Milan show patience with Gennaro Gattuso.

Gullit said, “He’s only just started, I hope he does well. It’ll take time to evaluate him in full, at least three years. I can only hope he does well.”

Patience is rarely a virtue in football, but the point remains that Gattuso has taken this Milan team and gotten them further up the table than anyone could have dreamed when he took over. This club should be in contention for the Champions League trophy and Scudetto every season, not hoping to come from behind to nick fourth place, and right now there doesn’t appear to be anyone other than Gattuso capable of bringing the ghosts of Milan victories past into the San Siro.
