The change of coach from Vincenzo Montella to Gattuso has failed to yield an improvement, with the former Milan midfielder picking up just four points from his three league games in charge, including a draw with Benevento, who have lost all their other 16 games this season.
“AC Milan announce that the team will go on a training retreat from tomorrow until further notice,” the club wrote on Twitter on Monday.
A club spokesperson also told the ANSA news agency that it was “absolutely false” that Gattuso had offered to resign from his job just weeks after being promoted from his position in charge of the youth team.
The spokesperson added that it was untrue that Gattuso was opposed to the training camp, saying the decision was “shared” by the coach and the club management.
