Gennaro Gattuso has been appointed as Valencia manager on a two years contract.

Valencia has appointed Gennaro Gattuso has manager on a deal until June 2024.

The former Napoli manager replaces Jose Bordalas, who was dismissed just one season into a two-year contract.

This was after a campaign in which Valencia finished ninth and lost the Copa del Rey final to Real Betis.

“After hanging up the boots, he started his coaching career in 2012 with teams like AC Milan and SSC Napoli, with whom he won the Coppa Italia in 2020.”

Gattuso spent 18 months in charge of the Rossoneri after being appointed in November 2017.

They narrowly missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification by a solitary point during his one full season in charge.

He later took over Napoli, who he led to Coppa Italia glory in the 2019/2020 season.

But Gattuso departed a year later after again missing out on UEFA Champions League qualification.

The 44-year-old was appointed Fiorentina boss in May last year, only for the two parties to rescind that agreement a month later.

Gattuso has also had spells in charge of Sion, Palermo, OFI Crete and Pisa before re-joining AC Milan — initially with their Primavera side.

As a player, Gattuso won two Serie A titles and two UEFA Champions League medals during a glittering 13-year stay with AC Milan.

He was also a FIFA World Cup winner with Italy in 2006.
