Gattuso: I didn't want to be AC Milan traitor

"It only took me five minutes to discuss my problems, which were not at all financial," the former Rangers man said to news agency Dire. "Carlo Ancelotti and Adriano Galliani listened to me and we are still friends like we were before. I will be here for three more years and I will finish my career at Milan.

"I never really thought about leaving this club because it wouldn't be easy after nine years. When we went into the office, Galliani closed the door and told me that if I wanted to leave I would have to jump out the window.

"It took no time to clarify our positions and I felt the full affection of the club.

"When you wear this shirt you always want to win and at times you are left a little disappointed. The fans' love is also important and I didn't want to make the mistake that Andriy Shevchenko did and leave as a traitor."
