“He inherited the squads of Sarri and Ancelotti and hasn’t been able to do more,” Altafini told TuttoMercatoWeb.
“He could have aimed for the Scudetto but he has got worse recently.”
Altafini also criticised the perceived lack of quality directors in Italian football and accused modern presidents of being too obsessed with sacking coaches.
“There is also a general discussion,” he said. “Many directors today are of Serie C quality.
“Once upon a time, the presidents did not come into the locker rooms. They put important men to deal with things and direct.
“Today, they do it all themselves. They send the coaches away and win the records for sackings.”
