Gattuso: I’d walk to England to manage Manchester United

By Isoccer Staff

Former Italy midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has said that he would relish the opportunity to manage Manchester United.

Gattuso, who won the World Cup with Italy as a player, is currently the manager of Pisa, and revealed that he has an
admiration for English football.

Gattuso told The Sun: “I’d walk there. I’d even go tomorrow.

“(Sir Alex) Ferguson has always respected me — and I have always admired the Premier League which, for me, is the best league in the world.

“In Italy, we are tactical masters, but in England you see pacey players — with great strength in their legs.

“I love watching the Championship, because in those games, I see true love that people in England have for football. They breathe football.

“I record two Championship matches a night.

“In Italy, some teams can relax during games. In England, with every action of a team, there is a corresponding action from the opposition.”

There has been substantial speculation in recent months about the future of current United manager Louis van Gaal, with the Dutchman having overseen some hugely concerning results this campaign.

United, who have created 236 chances in the league this season, are currently in sixth place in the table, but for all the disappointment they have endured, there is still a chance that they could conclude the campaign in positive fashion given that they are still in contention in the FA Cup and the Europa League.

Van Gaal’s side take on Liverpool at Anfield in the latter competition today, with United seeking to bounce back from the defeat they suffered against West Bromwich Albion last weekend.

Van Gaal remains adamant that he will see out the final year of his contract at United, despite the heavy criticism that he has endured from supporters and the media alike this season.

Prior to the West Brom game United had experienced an upturn in form, but they struggled to cope at The Hawthorns following the dismissal of Juan Mata.
