AC Milan head coach Gennaro Gattuso has signed a new three-year contract, the Serie A club have confirmed.
The 40-year-old was initially given a contract until the end of the season following Vincenzo Montella's departure last November, and was only able to win one of his first five league games in charge.
However, the Rossoneri have improved since the New Year, with eight wins out of 11 leaving them sixth in the table.
Gattuso has now agreed to fresh terms that will reportedly see his wages increased from the €120,000 salary he has had since making the step up from the Primavera team.
"The management decided to bring forward Gattuso's contract renewal to reward his hard work the best way before the end of the season," the club said in a statement.
"This important gesture reflects the total harmony and empathy between the club management and the coach.
"This way, AC Milan give continuity and confidence to the project, assuring the serenity of the Rossoneri players and the happiness of our fans.
"The Rossoneri are (and remain) in Rino's hands!"
