Arrigo Sacchi hopes Antonio Conte will help improve the quality of football in Serie A this season after joining Inter this summer.

The former AC Milan and Italy coach wrote a long column in Gazzetta dello Sport this morning, explaining how the league had reached ‘a turning point’ with an influx of new coaches and ideas.

Sacchi was confident Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Milan and Roma would help Italian football move closer to ‘more evolved schools of thought’.

“It will be the big clubs in particular who help create this epochal change, which will see catenaccio replaced by a more progressive mentality, but it won’t only be them,” he said, naming the likes of Atalanta, Sampdoria and Sassuolo.

“We’re about to give a vigorous shoulder barge to our past, with the aim of being competitive despite not spending loads of money and avoiding the temptation to rely on individual talent.

“To put this project into practice our clubs have entrusted their teams to coaches who interpret their jobs like playwrights and directors. These are Sarri, Ancelotti, Conte, Giampaolo, Fonseca, Gasperini, Di Francesco, De Zerbi and Andreazzoli.

“They won’t be able to affect change on their own, though. They will need their clubs to display competence, conviction and patience.

“The favourites to achieve things this year will be those who deserve it the most for the beauty of their football and the commitment they will show. And that will ensure this is a season to remember.”
