Arrigo Sacchi is reportedly set to turn down Milan’s advances this summer to return to the club, due to a lack of desire.
The 68-year-old, who won eight major honours during a first period with the Rossoneri as Coach between 1987 and 1991, was speculated recently as due to return to San Siro this summer, as part of the club’s backroom reshuffle.
Sacchi was linked first with replacing Filippo Galli as head of youth development at the club and then with delaying his arrival by a year after Galli apparently turned down the chance to become Pippo Inzaghi’s assistant Coach.
However, the Gazzetta dello Sport indicate today that Sacchi is increasingly disinterested in the proposed return and has explained as much in phone conversations with both Galli and Adriano Galliani.
It is believed that the veteran, currently worked as youth co-ordinator with the Italian Football Federation, has made clear he does not hold the desire to take up a role that would require his attention seven days a week.
