Former AC Milan and Rangers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso says he can't see a place for women in soccer.

Gattuso made the comment after Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani agreed last week to share his role with Barbara Berlusconi, the daughter of club president Silvio.

"For someone like Galliani there should be more respect," Reuters reported Gattuso as telling Italy's Radio Radio, via BBC.com.

"I can't really see women in football. I don't like to say it but that's how it is."

Gattuso spent 13 years with Milan, winning two Champions Leagues titles, two Serie A titles and the Coppa Italian. He was moved into management this year but was twice let go by Swiss club FC Sion and Palermo.
