AC Milan legend Rino Gattuso is delighted with his move to Sion.

Gattuso penned a two-year deal with the Swiss outfit yesterday.

"I've come here to Sion to win and to compete with FC Basel for the championship," the 2006 World Cup winner said.

"I told Sion that they would get a hard-working and combative midfielder in me, but also that I couldn't offer them the quality of Andrea Pirlo," he smiled.

"The President of Sion, Christian Constantin, has promised me that we will have a competitive squad and so far it seems like that will be the case.

"My first impression of Sion's President was that he is a hot-tempered man like myself and that's why I liked him immediately.

"I had many offers from Italy, but I couldn't stand the idea of wearing the shirt of another Italian club other than Milan."
