In his latest column, which appeared in today’s print edition of Milan based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, legendary Italian football manager Arrigo Sacchi has shared his thoughts and feelings on Sunday night’s thrilling Derby della Madonnina between Inter and AC Milan.
AC Milan went into the half time interval with a deserved 2-0 lead but could not carry on their first half showing into the second half and were made to pay as Inter came out a completely different side and smashed four past them to win 4-2.
“What happened on Sunday at San Siro was incredible. What George Bernard Shaw wrote is true. Football is the art of compressing universal history in just 90 minutes,” he began his column.
“In the first half, Conte’s men were worried, uncoordinated, pressed insufficiently and used their possession of the ball inadequately. After the break though, we were able to admire a beautiful, determined and aggressive Inter. In the end, the Nerazzurri demonstrated their technical and mental qualities.”
Sacchi is perhaps best known for his spell in charge of managing AC Milan during the late 1980s and early 1990s. During his time in charge of the Rossoneri, he won eight trophies, including back to back Champions League titles in the 1988/89 and 1989/90 seasons.
The 73-year-old last managed Parma back in 2001 and has spent much of the time since then as a football pundit and columnist.
