The 2021-22 season ended a few days ago for European clubs, but football activity continues with the UEFA Nations League. While those games are played, the teams are already thinking about the next course. In Spain, for example, Valencia only has to officially announce Gennaro Gatusso as its new coach.
In fact, the Italian technical director, champion with the ‘Azzurra’ in the 2006 World Cup, confirmed this Wednesday, upon his arrival at Manises airport, his signing for the ‘Ché’ cast and was very proud to join a club which has more than a hundred years of history.
“I am very happy, it is the first time that I am in Valencia and I am very happy, very proud. I have signed a contract with a centennial team, with a lot of history and it is an honour”, he said to questions from the media.
Gattuso was received by Valencia staff and also by a few fans who celebrated with songs his appearance in the terminal after landing on a flight from Malaga.
“The fans are really looking forward to it, I am too and tomorrow we will talk about everything at the press conference and then we are going to work very hard”assured.
‘Rino’, 44 years old and retired from professional football in 2013 with a Sion shirt, began his story on the bench, precisely in the Swiss entity. Gattuso subsequently took charge of Palermo, OFI Crete, Pisa, Milan and Napoli. Likewise, although Fiorentina announced him as DT in June 2021, less than a month later, he announced his departure without having directed a match for the violet cast.
