AC Milan legend Rino Gattuso was touched by his San Siro reception for yesterday's friendly with his FC Sion.

The Swiss outfit were beaten 6-0 in front of around 4,000 people.

"How can you not get emotional at returning here?" the former Rossoneri hero told Milan Channel.

"It was a great day and wonderful sensations. I really enjoy this type of work, as the way I spent my life in football terms it was a natural transition from player to player-manager.

"It feels like years ago looking at how Milan are now, but instead it was only a few months. This is a quality side that has real prospects."
