Gennaro Gattuso was always a fiery character when he was a player, and it seems that he has taken that intensity to the sideline in his management career. 

The former Milan player is the boss of Pisa in the third division of Italian football, and his own assistant manager was on the receiving end of his ire recently when his side took on Gruppo B leaders Spal. 

Looking to close the gap with his side in second, Gattuso got particularly annoyed at one point that he went right to the touchline, gesturing and shouting at his players before turning around and getting involved in an altercation with his own assistant manager. 

The message must have gotten through to his side in the end, as they ended up winning the game 2-1, and closing the gap at the top to five points.

If Joe Jordan is looking for a new gig, he might give Gattuso a call, given they're used to interacting with each other like that.
