MILAN - AC Milan's combative midfielder
Gennaro Gattuso was in trouble again on Tuesday after an amateur
video emerged of him making insulting remarks about Inter coach
and former Milan boss Leonardo.
Gattuso, banned for four European matches for head-butting
Tottenham Hotspur assistant coach Joe Jordan in their Champions
League last-16 tie in February, was celebrating Milan's league
title triumph on Saturday when he unleashed the expletives.
The World Cup winner had been critical in the past of
Leonardo's decision to join Inter in December after 13 years as
a player, director and coach at bitter rivals Milan.
The usually mild-mannered Leonardo was not amused by the
"The day I decided to leave Milan, Gattuso said to me that I
had at least been coherent in my choice. But today I read he
still wants to give his own version of events," the Brazilian
said in a statement issued by Inter.
"I would very much like to know what he has to say, since
neither on the phone nor in person has that ever been possible."
Milan, overjoyed at finally ending Inter's five-year reign
as Serie A champions, could meet Inter in the Italian Cup final
if they both get through this week's semi-final second legs.
"It doesn't seem a particularly dramatic incident," Milan
chief executive Adriano Galliani told reporters amid media
speculation the Italian football federation may launch an inquiry
into Gattuso's outburst after the 0-0 draw at AS Roma.
