With the club at a fairly protracted low ebb, AC Milan have rung the changes this morning by sacking Vincenzo Montella and installing Gennaro Gattuso as temporary head coach.
Sunday’s drab goalless draw with Torino proved to be the death knell for Montella, who leaves the Rossoneri languishing down in eighth place, already some 18 points behind Serie A leaders Napoli with just 14 games played.
Indeed, under Montella, Milan have lost six of their 14 league fixtures so far, making this their worst start to an Italian top flight campaign since 1941/42.

The club have already confirmed that Gattuso will step into the breach until a permanent replacement (Carlo Ancelotti?) is found, making him the fourth member of the club’s 2007 Champions League-winning squad to manage the club in some capacity within the last decade – Clarence Seedorf, Pippo Inzaghi and Cristian Brocchi being the other three.
By their powers combined, the quartet of old boys have managed a colossal total of 27 victories between them.
Like we said, a low ebb.
