Sacchi: Conte fooled Tavecchio

Former Italy boss Arrigo Sacchi claims “the masterstroke of Antonio Conte fooled Carlo Tavecchio into appointing Giampiero Ventura.”

FIGC chief Tavecchio was praised for bringing in Conte, who took Italy to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals, but is now facing calls to step down from his position.

However, Sacchi believes the Azzurri’s problems lie deeper than the President and Ventura after their failure to qualify for the World Cup, even if he disagreed with the 69-year-old’s appointment.

Sacchi slams Italy tactics

Arrigo Sacchi dislikes the Italy squad set to face Sweden for a place in the World Cup. “Nobody in Serie A uses three at the back.”

The first leg of the play-off is in Stockholm tomorrow at 19.45 GMT, with the decider in Milan on Monday.

“What Ventura is using is not a 3-5-2, but a 5-3-2,” former Milan and Italy Coach Sacchi told RadioUno.

“Nobody in Serie A uses three at the back and that includes Milan, because they have three centre-backs and another two are full-backs.”

Ancelotti's Azzurri destiny

Carlo Ancelotti is destined to be the Italy Coach, writes Richard Hall, but when is the right time for him and the Nazionale?

Any talk of Carlo Ancelotti coaching the Azzurri should begin with the parties agreeing on one simple thing. It is a matter of when, not if.

Joachim Low and Gareth Southgate had nowhere near the experience of the aforementioned Coach, whilst Didier Deschamps has been nowhere near as successful. There is no doubt that his CV, boasting three Champions Leagues and four league titles in four countries, is enough elevate him to that level. The questions should be instead: would he want it, when and, would he still be relevant?
