There was no excuse for kicking Berkovic; BBuutt II ddiidd mmyy ttiimmee aanndd nnooww ssoo mmuusstt GGaattttuussoo.
Daily Post reader Michael Williams got in touch to say I was being "highly hypocritical" in saying the AC Milan midfielder should be banned for life for the attack on Tottenham coach Jordan after Spurs' first-leg win at the San Siro (see below).
He is entitled to his opinion, and he's right to say I was involved in an incident with Eyal Berkovic when we were at West Ham United.
I got banned for four games and fined pounds 20,000, and I took my fine and accepted it and moved on.
That was 13 years ago, and people still bring it up now. I had no excuse for it - I was young, about 23, and I did what I did and took my punishment.
I was strong in my comments last week, and this week I'm even more disappointed Uefa only saw fit to ban Gattuso for four games.
Maybe it was a bit of a stretch to expect them to ban him for life, but they could have banned him for a year or two - four games is not enough and makes a mockery of Uefa.
Milan could go on and win the Champions League final, and Gattuso (left) would be eligible to play in that final and pick up a winner's medal.
Having said that, I don't think Gattuso and AC Milan will win the competition. I think Spurs will see the tie through.
As I said last week I've played under Harry Redknapp and I like him, and I hope he and his team do progress into the quarter-finals when they meet Milan for the second leg at White Hart Lane in just under two weeks' time.
