Gattuso insisted it's no contest in any comparison between Wenger and him.
He said: “When I go to bed I dream of Mesut Ozil and Wenger, not about my playing days. That's in the past, this is something different. You can't compare it.
“Compared to Wenger I'm in the children's team, I'm just starting and he's been coaching for 30 years. In that regard it's not a contest.
“He's won so much in his career. My path is still very long. It will be an interesting match, with more of a new philosophy like mine against him and his experience."
