Former AC Milan and Italy coach Arrigo Sacchi has praised the unity of the current Rossoneri squad under coach Stefano Pioli, who won the Serie A title after defeating Sassuolo 3-0 on Sunday evening.
The 76-year-old won his only scudetto as a coach in 1987/88 before winning consecutive European Cups in 1989 and 1990, and he was impressed with the way the current Diavolo side have played throughout the 2021/22 campaign.
“I have no doubts about the secret of this success: the collective,” Sacchi told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Milan have shown, although not always, that they are a collective on the pitch. And when they were a collective, that is often, it amused the public and implemented a European style of football, finally far from the old Italian tradition.
“A football made of pressing, enthusiasm, a spirit of sacrifice, good ball possession, synergy. When it comes to internalisation, then the maximum has really been reached.”
AC Milan are now level with city rivals Inter for Serie A titles with 19 each.
