Sacchi snubs Allegri as he names his favourite Italian coaches

August 26, 2022 - 11:30 am

Legendary Italian manager, Arrigo Sacchi, has snubbed Max Allegri while naming his favourite Italian coaches.

The Bianconeri gaffer is arguably the most successful Italian boss coaching a Serie A team now.

However, his team does not play the most attractive football, which means they hardly get credit for how beautiful they play.

But it works and wins trophies. Allegri has won six league titles, five of which have been with Juve.

This is one reason the Bianconeri brought him back as their manager at the start of last season.

The club has kept faith with him despite not winning a single trophy in that campaign.

But Sacchi does not consider him one of his favourite bosses. He was asked to name the Italian managers he loves, he said, as quoted by Football Italia:

“Many. Sarri, Gasperini, some younger ones, Italiano, De Zerbi even though he lacks the defensive phase that is a projection of the offensive phase, Conte.”

Juve FC Says

It is clear that Sacchi has made his pick based on how the managers set up their teams to play and not what they win.

It does not matter how a team plays football if they win. When Juve returns to dominate Italian football again, they will hand the plaudits to Allegri.

    Sacchi has always hated JUVENTUS FC…… big deal. It’s not as if his views are going to disturb Mr Allegri’s sleep.
    Such serial haters of JUVENTUS FC in the media and punditry communities.

    When you say “However, his team does not play the most attractive football, which means they hardly get credit for how beautiful they play.” Are you trying to say that Sacchi ignored that Juve play modern and attractive football? Becauae Sacchi is right, Allegri is not a modern coach, he’s archaic, and the success of the 5 Scudettoes he won are as a result of the winning mentality as enshrined in the team by Conte.

    So to all of you Juventus fan boys, this admin included – the challenge is for your savior – Allegri to build his own team with a winning mentality. My take is that he won’t succeed.

      yes agree 100%. Conte`s Dna was in those players and was the secret recipe he piggybacked off. we have seen last season what his true talent is. And rember, Lord Octagon said last season was `excellent`

    Max is pushing towards it and it’s evident that he will succeed, although winning Scudetto might be the main priority at the moment, the long-term goal has to be victory in the Champions League, which clearly demonstrates that Max is not Juve’s savior. We should hunt for younger, more professional head coaches such as Zidane, and De Zerbi, even bringing back Pirlo could be conducive in the long term cause they know the state of current soccer

      allegri is a dnosaur, and embarrassing us all. We have upgraded the squad and might get top 4, but only if allegri plays them because the players save him, just when he took over with Conte`s players. Everybody knew he`d be playing his boy rabiot last week. A true re-build would have had a younger coach as you said, we are stuck in the mud until allegri is gone, and we are already banter with people asking if we are going to finish below Benfica.

    Sacchi was playing when it really was two points for a win, and a draw would be half a saviour. allegri has been exposed, and we are paying the price.i think it was a pretty strong rumour last time that Conte wanted to come back and nedved agreed , but agnelli chose allegri. as he was guaranteed hisjob last year even if we didn`t get top 4, what has to happen for him to go? scary.
