Legendary AC Milan Coach Arrigo Sacchi: “Inter Coach Antonio Conte Has A Long Term Plan”

Legendary Italian football manager Arrigo Sacchi is convinced that Antonio Conte had to make a compromise and accept some players arriving at Inter in the Summer transfer window that were not necessarily players that suit him and his style.

“He has a long term plan. The question is, did Antonio get functional players? It’s as if the writer and director had a comedy film in mind and the producer brought in great dramatic actors,” he began an interview with Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera, which appeared in yesterday’s print edition.

“He is a great coach, he lives for football, he has one certainty: you can always do more and better. He can seek perfection although he will not achieve it. He asks for the maximum, he gives it.

Sacchi, who is perhaps best known for his spell in charge of AC Milan in the last 1980s and early 1990s, then added: “I think he had to compromise, I refuse to think that some players who have arrived will suit him. Churchill used to say, changing does not always mean improving, but to improve you have to change.”

Sacchi was then asked whether Inter’s current play style is still too defensive to which he responded: “Take Real Madrid versus Inter for example.

“The Nerazzurri had two forwards, Lautaro and Perisic. How many defenders did Real have? Two, Varane and Ramos.

“On the other side there was only Benzema and three defenders in D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Bastoni. In the movement on the pitch you have to be the extra player not static.”

Conte took charge of Inter in the Summer of 2019 and signed a three year contract with Inter which made him the highest paid coach in the history of Serie A.

The former Juventus and Italian national team boss has managed Inter in 63 matches across all competitions to date, of which Inter have won 35, drawn 17 and lost 11.
