AC Milan's Gattuso: I almost joined Bayern Munich

AC Milan midfielder Rino Gattuso has revealed he came close to signing with Bayern Munich in the summer.

"I was close to Bayern," the former Rangers enforcer noted. "But I am happy that I remained with Milan.

"That was the right decision to make because it is still an honour for me to wear the Rossoneri colours."

Gattuso endured a difficult season with the San Siro giants last term, but was tempted to remain by Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

"He convinced me to stay," revealed the Italian international. "I've been made to feel important again in this team and that's why I'm confident I made the correct choice."
