Milan could be dealt a big blow as worries over Gattuso's fitness, ahead of Milan 's derby clash on Sunday, grow.
The World Cup winner picked up a knock against Boca Juniors in the final of the World Club Cup which saw Milan triumph 4-2 to be crowned champions for the 4th time.
Gattuso did not take part in any of Carlo Ancelotti's training sessions this week and an evaluation on his fitness is expected to be done during Milan's training session today but Carlo will wait until the last possible minute to name his squad for tomorrow's game.
If "il Ringhio" doesn't pass his fitness test his natural replacement will be Cristian Brocchi who played and captained Milan against Catania, which saw him play the full 90 minutes in Milan's 2-1 loss.
The only other doubts the rossoneri coach has is in his full-back positions. He is struggling on whether to play Oddo or Bonera on the right or Jankulovski or Maldini on the left. The Milan captain is bursting with excitement to play against his old rivals and a victory over Inter will be just as great as winning the Club World Cup.
