Gennaro Gattuso remains in charge of OFI Crete after resignation U-turn

Former Italy midfielder Gennaro Gattuso remains in charge of OFI Crete after being convinced by the club's board and supporters not to resign.

Former Italy midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has performed a U-turn over his decision to quit as OFI Crete boss.

The 36-year-old previously announced that he would be leaving the Greek club following a 3-2 loss at home to Asteras Tripolis on Sunday.

However, the World Cup winner subsequently told the club's official website: "After many hours of discussions with members of the board and with the organised supporter groups of OFI, and after the love I have been shown generally by the city of Heraklio, I have decided to take a step back and make a new start.

"I want to start from the beginning again and the aim is for us to be stronger and more united than ever."

Gattuso, who previously managed Swiss club Sion and then-Serie B outfit Palermo, made headlines when his expletive-laden OFI Crete press conference in September went viral.
