Arrigo Sacchi speaks out on Stefano Pioli and wishes him well

Arrigo Sacchi, with ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport,’ commented on the parable at AC Milan of Stefano Pioli, who won his first Scudetto in his coaching career with the Rossoneri and this season is confirming himself at the top of Serie A, although Napoli are momentarily five points behind in the standings.

“Stefano is very good,” he said, bluntly. “He also showed this when, after the friendly defeat against Psv, he kept the team on report and did not give the day off. Certain defeats are important notices to seize.”

Sacchi then wished that Pioli could quickly rise in the ranking of coaches with the most victories, at Milan, in official matches: “I wish him to catch me quickly,” said the Vate from Fusignano, sixth in the special ranking with 113 victories, 22 more than the coach from Parma, “it would mean that Milan is doing great things.

Finally, a tactical note is not missing: “Milan only makes mistakes when it stretches,” Sacchi said, “I am convinced that if the team remains compact, it will do well. The models it must have are clear: Michels’ Ajax, the Milan of the late 1980s, Guardiola’s Barcelona.”
