Gattuso takes over at Sion

Swiss side FC Sion have appointed Gennaro Gattuso as their player-manager, following the demotion of former boss Victor Munoz.

Gattuso, 34, joined the club as a player after leaving AC Milan last summer but has earned a promotion, with Munoz losing his job after the 4-0 defeat to Thun on Sunday.

The former Getafe boss, who only took over the reins last month, is expected to take up scouting duties with the club.

A club statement read: "Following Sion's disastrous performance against FC Thun and in the face of the lack of effort showing in the team, the club's board have decided to make the players face their responsibilities.

"To do this, from now until further notice, they will take charge of their own affairs. The club entrusts the responsibility for the group to its captain Gennaro Gattuso.''

Gattuso will be Sion's fifth manager of the season and takes over a side currently lying fourth in the Swiss top division. His first match in charge will see Sion visit Lausanne in the Swiss Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

The midfielder has represented Italy on 73 occasions, as well as playing for Milan 335 times.
