Sacchi: Actions not words

Former Milan boss Arrigo Sacchi has called for ‘patience’ as the Rossoneri look to get out of their recent slide.

The San Siro outfit have crashed out of the Champions League and currently sit in 10th place in the table.

Legend Paolo Maldini unleashed a tirade at the club on Tuesday, but the ex-Coach has insisted that the Diavolo need actions not words.

“I agree in part with the things Maldini said,” he told Gazzettta dello Sport. “Although, now I think we have to roll up our sleeves.

“It’s difficult to know the future, but the past teaches us that Milan have already been able to get out of a crisis.

“Obviously we want healthy self-criticism, but we also need patience. Don’t forget that three years ago Milan won the League.

“I understand the objections of the fans, but with Milan, Berlusconi has won everything. The President and Galliani have built teams that have won before – one’s been considered the greatest of all time.

“I have respect for the fans but also for everyone else at the club. We have to tell the fans not to behave like those of less successful teams.

“Now we need to talk less and start to do things.

“We can’t judge Seedorf right now. We need patience. He’s smart guy and I like his ideas.”
