"AC Milan announce to have parted ways with Vincenzo Montella".

However, despite the sacking, The Little Aeroplane has taken to social media to pay his respects to Milan and the club's fans as well as wishing Gattuso well in his new job.

AC Milan have sacked manager Vincenzo Montella and replaced him with former midfielder Gennaro Gattuso.

Former Fiorentina coach Montella said he was sorry he had not done enough with the team.

Gattuso made more than 450 appearances for AC Milan between 1999 and 2012, helping Milan win two Serie A titles and making 72 global appearances for Italy, being part of their 2006 World Cup winning team.

Montella was let go after a mediocre start to the season which has seen Milan, despite heavy investment over the summer, struggle to make anything resembling an impression in the Serie A title race.

In 2014, he tried his luck with Greek Super League side OFI Crete who were beset by financial problems and, according to Gattuso, were "struggling to feed their players".

Milan, 18-times Italian champions, enjoyed a golden age under Berlusconi but his last few years as president became a story of unsuccessful transfers, mid-table finishes and musical chairs in the coach's seat.
