Gattuso slaps AC Milan defender Gabriele Bellodi for holding a Barcelona shirt

- AC Milan manager Gattuso slapped defender after friendly with Barcelona

- The 17-year-old defender was holding Barca's jersey after a 1-0 victory

- Gattuso has also had touchline spat with Tottenham's assistant manager

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso was not afraid to make his feelings known during his playing days with the Rossoneri.

The ex-Milan midfielder had a bust-up with former Tottenham assistant Joe Jordan who squared up to the Italian on the touchline during his playing days.

The 40-year-old is currently spending his second spell with the San Siro outfit as manager, transferring those feisty personality traits to the touchline.

Gattuso slapped a 17-year-old defender Gabriele Bellodi around the head after he proudly held a Barcelona shirt in the air.

The incident happened following Milan's 1-0 victory over the Spanish champions earlier this month.

Valente Silva scored the winner in injury time in the International Champions Cup tournament and after the final whistle, Bellodi clearly wanted to remember the result by picking up a Barca shirt.

Gattuso, on the other hand, was not exactly delighted by the defender's actions, using the classic Italian hand gesture to showcase his feelings.

The former World Cup winner however gave the 17-year-old a chance to impress in the tournament - something Bellodi will never forget.

Gattuso has also slapped his assistant in the face for getting a little bit too passionate during an important tie against SPAL while he was coach with Pisa.
