Gattuso

Swiss club Sion has been through the ringer the past few years, facing off with UEFA in court due to a ban from the Europa league for fielding ineligible players. Club president Christian Constantin–described as eccentric;  never a good thing– sacked Victor Munoz during the team’s loss to FC Thun on Sunday.

After joining the team as a player to start the 2012/13 season, captain Gennaro Gattuso was named the new manager on Monday. Yesterday Gattuso managed his first ever match, leading Sion to a 2-0 victory at Lausanne.

Via Football Italia:

Gattuso’s debut saw his side earn a 2-0 win in Lausanne, securing their qualification for the Swiss Cup semi-final. He performed three substitutions from the pitch, including himself four minutes from time.

Note to TFC manager Ryan Nelsen: you can actually pull this off. Please do it. You’ll achieve legend status pretty quick.
