Brambati: AC Milan refused to sign Ribery for Gattuso

Former Serie A defender Massimo Brambati says AC Milan were wrong to dump Rino Gattuso.

Brambati also insists Gattuso was blocked from signing Franck Ribery before he joined Fiorentina.

"I still don't understand why Milan took this long path round with Marco Giampaolo only to then get Stefano Pioli," Brambati told TMW Radio.

“It was better to stick with Gattuso and follow his ideas, as in a meeting he had asked them to sign three experienced players, including two who were free agents.

“Gattuso had requested Ribery as one of the names, who was then brought to Fiorentina by Luca Toni and is doing a great job there.

“Instead, Milan rejected Gattuso and all his proposals."
