Sacchi: 'Juve have a limit'

Arrigo Sacchi is ‘optimistic’ fans can return in September, claims Juventus have ‘a limit of settling for domestic success’ and ‘hopes’ Paolo Maldini stays at Milan.

Serie A fixtures for the 2019-20 season have yet to resume behind closed doors, but Sacchi is still hopeful supporters in Italy will be let back through the turnstiles sooner rather than later.

“If the contagion curve doesn’t rise, we have to start again,” he told Corriere dello Sport.

On this day: Sacchi wins first Milan trophy

On this day in 1988, Arrigo Sacchi won the first trophy of his legendary tenure as Milan coach.

Milan and Napoli were neck-and-neck going into the final round of the 1987-88 Serie A campaign, with the Rossoneri only two points clear at the top.

Whereas Napoli hosted European-chasing Sampdoria in their last game, their title rivals travelled to Como, whose top-flight status still had to be confirmed.

The Diavolo took just two minutes to take the lead through Pietro Virdis, who danced past three opposing defenders before firing past Mario Paradisi.

Stars pay tribute to Baresi at 60

Franco Baresi’s former Milan teammates have paid tribute to the legendary defender, on his 60th birthday.

Born in Travagliato on May 8 1960, Baresi joined the Rossoneri academy at a young age. He was picked up at the age of 12 but rejected by city rivals Inter.

He would go on to make his debut in 1978, working hard to establish himself in the starting XI the following season.

Serie A Seasons: Milan 1991-92

It seemed impossible to follow in the footsteps of Arrigo Sacchi, but newcomer Fabio Capello achieved an historic record with the Invincible Milan…

Words: Martin Mork

At the final whistle, Rai Sport journalist Jacopo Volpi storms the pitch to be in on the jubilant scenes, chasing the players as they were jumping up and down, hugging each other, with Volpi on their tail screaming into the microphone: “They said you were finished!”

He grabs Roberto Donadoni, who can’t hear what he said and makes Volpi repeat himself: “They said you were finished, well past it!”

Rangnick the man to revive Milan

Ralf Rangnick may be something of an unknown quantity in Calcio circles, but Livio Caferoglu explains why he is exactly what Milan need right now.

History tells us German coaches aren’t usually a good fit for Italian clubs. Rudi Voller starred for Roma as a player between 1987 and 1992, but managed them for less than a month in 2004, winning just one of his six games in charge. He remains the only German to have ever coached in Serie A. Despite that, Milan are keen to rewrite history with Ralf Rangnick. And for good reason, too.

Zeman's Bohemian Rhapsody

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks back on Zdenek Zeman’s time at Foggia, one of Serie A’s greatest games, and assesses the Czech’s philosophy.

It was real life, but many remember it as fantasy. For some time, Italian football was caught in a landslide of the same style of football. Zdenek Zeman was an escape from reality, that is true, but we do not always remember him as we should. The Czech coach was certainly ahead of his time, he definitely was an entertaining influence, as the nickname Zemanlandia was meant to turn his Foggia team into a theme park, you were just along for the ride.

“A 0-0 is boring. It is better to lose 5-4, at least it gives you some excitement”

Sacchi: 'Milan learn from Atalanta'

Former coach Arrigo Sacchi claims the players at Milan “need pride” and to learn from Atalanta, was “surprised” by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s impact at San Siro and can’t think of the football season resuming anytime soon.

The tactician marked his 74th birthday on April 1, though there was clearly no party due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Van Basten slams 'dishonest Sacchi'

Milan legend Marco van Basten thought he would “last forever”, revealed his poor impression of Arrigo Sacchi and how Zlatan Ibrahimovic “provoked” him.

Klopp: 'I won't come to Italy'

Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp has revealed that Milan legend Arrigo Sacchi has inspired his work but insisted he will have to learn Italian before considering a move to Serie A.

The German tactician won the Champions League with the Reds last season and this year they are currently 25 points above Manchester City at second, on their way to end a 30-year wait for the Premier League title.

Klopp would not have a lack of possible suitors should he decide to call it a day on Merseyside, but he declines the possibility of a move to Italy, at least for now.
