The goodbye of José Bordalás, with settlement included, will serve so that Valencia can give him the starting signal for the era of Gennaro Gattuso in Mestalla. The agreement with the Italian coach is complete and only a few fringes remain to be polished to officially announce his incorporation. It could even be done today. Gattuso will be coach of Valencia until 2024, although his contract is still being given a spin.
The Italian coach, with experience at Napoli and Milan, has a lot of work ahead of him. In fact, could arrive in Valencia at the end of this week to be presented. The coach had not wanted to travel before until Bordalás did not say goodbye to the media and the fans, as he did yesterday.
Gattuso will have to start planning his project, marked by sales and economic readjustment. The former player already knows that he will have to rebuild Valencia without part of his pillars because Gayà, Soler and Guedes can leave Mestalla this summer to balance the gap. On the pitch, the Italian will also try to change the style with a game with more possession and that he will have to instill in a long preseason.
