Former Italy coach Arrigo Sacchi has once again spoken out on Roberto Mancini’s resignation as coach of the Azzurri. In Sacchi’s view, the now former head of the coaching staff should have informed the team of his resignation earlier, so as not to penalize the team. He also gave his opinion on Antonio Conte and Luciano Spalletti being considered for the job.
“I didn’t expect it, obviously there was no longer any sharing of ideas with the Federation. However, if there really was no more sharing, perhaps he should have said so earlier. Mancini had an excellent European Championship and then things didn’t go well, so what happened wasn’t ethically a good thing. Luciano is good, Antonio is good too. But Mancini himself was good, perhaps he paid the price of excessive enthusiasm after the Euro 2020 victory, the danger of the precariousness of victory. In Italy, you win once and you think you’ve arrived,” Arrigo Sacchi told Sportmediaset.
