Gattuso Contract Heavy On Incentives

MIAMI, Fla (December 12, 2019) —

Gennaro Gattuso was on the list of possible head coaches for Inter Miami CF. On Tuesday night, he was installed as the new manager at Napoli, a few hours after the club said arrivederci to Carlo Ancelotti.

Gattuso’s contract is heavy on incentives. According to information obtained by the Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport, Gattuso will earn 750,000 € from now until June, 2020. His contract can be lengthened for two more years if Napoli finishes in the top four spots in Serie A and thereby qualifies for the Champions League next season. Under such an extension, Gattuso’s salary will increase to 1.5 million € per year. Further incentives could raise that total to 2 million € per year.

When asked about Carlo Ancelotti, who had coached Gattuso while he was at AC Milan, he said “Ancelotti is like a father to me. In all these years he has always been close to me, helping me in all situations. He has won everything and I still have much to show. The objective is to climb positions and arrive in a position which puts us in the Champions League. We must work well, recover points and exit from this delicate situation.”


Gennaro Gattuso estaba en la lista de posibles directores técnicos para el Inter de Miami. El martes por la noche fue confirmado como nuevo técnico del Napolés. El contrato también se ha hecho público. Según informa la Gazzetta dello Sport, Gennaro cobrará 750.000 euros de aquí a junio, un contrato que se alargaría por otras dos temporadas si el equipo termina entre los cuatro primeros y se clasifica para la próxima Champions. Si eso ocurre, Gattuso pasaría a cobrar 1,5 milliones por año, cantidad que se podría elevar hasta los 2 millones si se cumplen unos bonus pactados.

Lo que dijó Gattuso sobre Carlo Ancelotti: “Ancelotti es un padre para mí. En todos estos años siempre ha estado cerca de mí ayudándome en todas las situaciones. Ganó todo y yo todavía tengo mucho que demostrar. El objetivo es remontar posiciones y llegar a las posiciones de Champions. Debemos trabajar bien, recuperar puntos y salir de este momento delicado”, confesó ‘Rino’.
