Head coach Gennaro Gattuso has left AC Milan by “mutual agreement” after the Serie A club missed out on Champions League qualification.
The 41-year-old former midfielder, who played 468 matches for the club, had two years left on his contract. In a statement, the club appreciated Gattuso for his leadership during the last 18 months.
They finished fifth in the table, missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League by one point.
AC Milan, seven-time champions of Europe, have not played in the Champions League since 2013-2014.
