Sacchi ‘can’t understand Napoli hype’

Arrigo Sacchi admits he has no idea why Napoli believe they can win Serie A. “It’s not like they bought Maradona or Careca this summer…”

In a surprising and unprovoked attack on Napoli’s title chances, Sacchi claimed the Partenopei did not have the “history” to classify themselves as contenders for the Scudetto or “top players” that the likes of Juventus had in their ranks.

Sacchi: ‘Bernardeschi isn’t Del Piero’

Arrigo Sacchi says Juventus target Federico Bernardeschi has “enormous potential” but “he’s not Baggio and he’s not Del Piero”.

The Fiorentina forward is expected to sign for the Bianconeri next week, with a medical reportedly scheduled for Monday.

The Turin giants will pay €40m to secure the Italian international, and Sacchi was asked what they’ll be getting for their money.

Sacchi: 'Donnarumma will regret Milan'

Milan legend Arrigo Sacchi was “stunned by the lack of gratitude” Gianluigi Donnarumma showed to the club. “He should remember Kaka and Andriy Shevchenko…”

The 18-year-old goalkeeper came up through their youth academy and became a Serie A regular at the age of 17, but on Thursday announced he would not be extending his contract.

“I used to respect Donnarumma as a lad and as a player, but I was stunned by the lack of gratitude towards Milan,” wrote Sacchi in La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Sacchi: 'Real Madrid defence mediocre'

Arrigo Sacchi believes Juventus will beat Real Madrid in the Champions League Final, above all because of the “mediocre defence.”

The Final will be in Cardiff on June 3 and the Bianconeri already knocked Madrid out in the 2015 semi-finals.

“The Real Madrid defence has no weight to it, no substance, apart from Sergio Ramos,” former Milan Coach Sacchi told Mediaset Premium.

“Danilo is a mediocre player and I don’t know if they will be able to get Dani Carvajal back in time for the Final.
