British public broadcaster ‘BBC’ re-examines an incident 12 years ago ahead of the first leg of the 2022-2023 European Champions League (UCL) Round of 16 between AC Milan and Tottenham, which will be held in San Siro, Milan, Italy on the morning of the 15th Korean time. did.
Milan and Tottenham also played the first leg of the UCL round of 16 in San Siro in the 2010-2011 season, 12 years ago. Gennaro Gattuso, Milan’s key midfielder at the time, engaged in a war of words with then-Tottenham coach Joe Jordan in an atmosphere heightened by Mathieu Flamini (Milan)’s tackle on Vedran Choluca (Tottenham).

Gattuso, who “lost his mind”, was once again engaged in a war of nerves with Coach Jordan, coach Harry Redknapp’s ‘right hand’, after losing the game 0-1 with Peter Crouch’s winning goal in the 35th minute of the second half. Coach Jordan said in an interview with ‘Sky’ in 2016, “Gattuso lost his temper. In a big game, he was the captain. On the day we won, Gattuso collided with one or two members of our team. I also had problems with myself. He chose me, an old man, among them.”
“I made a mistake,” Gattuso told Corriere della Sera last year. “I can say it’s common on the pitch, but I’m ashamed of what I did. I can’t justify it. I have a 14-year-old son.” “Gattuso invited me to the training ground about six months after the incident,” said Jordan coach, who played for Leeds, Manchester United and Milan during his career. It’s a pity I couldn’t play myself!”
Gattuso was nominated for Tottenham’s command tower in 2021 to replace Jose Mourinho as current AS Roma manager. However, it was blocked by the ‘No Gattuso’ campaign centered on Tottenham fans. Fans pointed out the racist and homophobic comments Gattuso had made since his playing days. Coach Gattuso was sacked in January after seven months at Valencia.
Meanwhile, the Milan-Tottenham match will be held at 5 am on the 15th. The European Football Federation (UEFA) predicted that Son Heung-min would start alongside Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski. The second leg between the two teams will be played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on March 9.
