Briefing: Agent Gennaro Gattuso (aka “The Pantsless Punisher”) has been a MNT member since 2000 and has over 60 appearances with the squad. Though he plays in the midfield, he is not expected to score goals or even get assists for that matter. Instead, he is expected to play stifling defense and prevent the MNT’s enemies from notching goals.
Special Skills: Agent Gattuso is well known for his viciously hard tackles and tireless effort on the pitch. Despite his increasing age, he is reputed to have some of the best endurance of any player in the world when healthy. He has spent most of his career with Milan where he has won several trophies and accummulated a multitude of cautions.
International Actions: Agent Gattuso appeared in both Mission 2002 and Mission 2006, and he played a huge role in the MNT’s capture of the WC. His nickname above refers to his celebration in Germany during which he removed his shorts and sprinted around the field in a state of near nudity until FIFA officials forced him to cover up.
Mission: Agent Gattuso’s mission, should he decide to accept it, will be to intercept opponents’ attack at midfield and spur the MNT’s counter-attack. However, a recent injury during a club mission will put him out of commission for six months and could threaten his position on the Mission 2010 squad. This message will self destruct in five seconds.
