Baggio: 'Football owed it to me'

Roberto Baggio looked back over his career, through injury nightmares, the Fiorentina riots, Bologna, Brescia and why 2002 hurt even more than the 1994 World Cup.

The Divine Ponytail sat down on stage during the Festival dello Sport in Trento this afternoon to discuss his career.

“When I was a kid, we used to play with a tennis ball and smash so many windows… What today’s kids are missing now is the joy of playing football anywhere, even in the street.

Sacchi: 'Giampaolo better bet than me'

Arrigo Sacchi has urged Milan to keep faith with under-fire Coach Marco Giampaolo. “He’s certainly a more reliable bet than I was in 1987.”

Rossoneri director and playing legend Paolo Maldini compared Giampaolo’s tactical adjustments to the early difficulties felt by Sacchi before going on to form one of the best teams in history.

Now the man himself is also warning there are parallels and the club mustn’t be hasty in pulling the plug.

Revolution or refinement?

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks at the Juventus changes and wonders if they can overcome a polished Napoli tonight.

Often when one frequents a football match at the stadium, watches it on television, or even writes about it, the process is similar. Normally the research is done, the enthusiasm is plentiful and the conclusions of win, lose or draw are considered.

This game sees a Juventus team in the earliest throes of a revolution against a Napoli team who are now being refined like wine. This article could have been written 8-10 times and could bring up just as many conclusions, it is that hard to judge. Its outcome, and even more so what it means, is even harder to read.

Milan take the tactical route

While others splash the cash on household names, Anthony Barbagallo believes Milan have made the most important investment in a real tactician.

Witnessing a seven-time Champions League winner sleep for the last six Serie A seasons has been nothing but tragic for one of Calcio’s titans. With half of the Italian media describing this crisis as a period of mediocrity, some believe, including former coaching legend Arrigo Sacchi, that Marco Giampaolo’s footballing philosophy will steer this Milan side back on the path to prosperity.

Sacchi: 'Why would Juve want Icardi?'

Arrigo Sacchi can’t understand why Maurizio Sarri would want Inter striker Mauro Icardi at Juventus. “It’d create more complications.”

There are multiple reports Icardi is rejecting all offers so that he can go to Juve this summer and play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Icardi is a specialist in his role, but would struggle within a concept of total football,” argued Grande Milan Coach Sacchi on Sport Mediaset.

Sacchi: 'Sarri will have Juve problems'

Arrigo Sacchi warns Maurizio Sarri will “inevitably run into problems, because novelty is not always accepted by players” at Juventus and Chelsea.

The former Napoli tactician is a complete transformation from Max Allegri and before him Antonio Conte.

“Sarri will inevitably run into problems, because he is proposing new ideas and novelty is not always accepted by players,” Grande Milan boss Sacchi told La Gazzetta dello Sport magazine SportWeek.

Sacchi: 'Sarri same level as Guardiola'

Arrigo Sacchi insists Pep Guardiola never considered the Juventus job, but Maurizio Sarri is “on the same level as Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.”

The man who revolutionised football in the late 1980s and created Il Grande Milan, one of the most successful teams of all time, is friends with both Sarri and Guardiola.

Despite months of speculation, the Manchester City boss never was in talks with the Old Lady.
