GENNARO GATTUSO: MILAN'S NOT-SO-SECRET WEAPON
They have Kaka, Seedorf, Pirlo, Ronaldinho, Pato, Shevchenko and soon Beckham - but the one they love the most, the one who eats, breathes and sweats Rossoneri, and the one who may very well be the reason things are not so good in the red half of Milan this year, is their not-so-secret secret weapon. Hiding there in plain sight, until his impact is only fully appreciated in his absence, is a little phenomenon called Gennaro Gattuso.
You've heard of him, you've seen him play and you've told yourself that he's the "heart and soul" of Milan, but be honest...you really mean that as the only compliment you could give the least aesthetically appealing member of squad.
Well, here's a post I found on him that is so elegantly constructed, it may just change what's in your heart the next time you utter this compliment.
A link to this site will reside permanently on the left-hand navigation of The Soccer Column, and I hope you enjoy the posts as much as I do...
