AC Milan hands Gattuso contract till 2021

MILAN, Italy: AC Milan have rewarded coach Gennaro Gattuso for an upturn in the club's fortunes with a contract until 2021.

"Gennaro Gattuso and AC Milan: the alliance continues! The Rossoneri coach has renewed his contract and will continue to lead the team until 2021," said a statement on the club's official website on Thursday.

The appointment of Gattuso on a seven-month contract was met with general surprise when he succeeded the experienced Vincenzo Montella last November because of his failure in previous coaching roles with lower league sides.

Without a league title since 2011, Milan's aim this season is to reach the Champions League and the Italian Cup final.

"The management decided to anticipate Gattuso's contract renewal to reward his hard work the best way before the end of the season, even if there are still plenty of goals to achieve: from qualifying to the Champions League, to the Italian Cup final,"
