Poster of Arrigo Sacchi

In the late 1980s, Italian football was in a state of crisis. The country's top clubs were dominated by foreign players, and the Italian national team had failed to make an impact at the international level for some time. This all changed in 1987 when Arrigo Sacchi was appointed manager of AC Milan. His revolutionary tactics changed the way football was played in Italy, and his teams were known for their attacking style of play. Sacchi completely transformed the playing style of both the club and the national team, and his methods are still studied and copied today.

Arrigo Sacchi's Career

Sacchi began his career in the lower divisions of Italian football. One of his first major achievements came when he won the Serie C with Parma, promoting them to the second division in his very first season with the club. He came close to promoting them to Serie A the very next season but fell short of just three points. His win in the Copa Italia group stage against AC Milan caught Milan's owner's eye and Sacchi was appointed the Rossoneri's manager the very next season in 1987. He immediately set about revolutionising the way Milan played, and his team became known for their attacking style of football.

In his first season in charge, Sacchi led Milan to the Serie A title. This was the beginning of a very successful period for both club and country. Under Sacchi, Milan won back-to-back European Cups making his Milan side one of the greatest teams of all time. He won a total of eight trophies during his four years with Milan.

In 1991, Sacchi was also appointed as the manager of the Italian national team. He quickly turned them into a force to be reckoned with at the international level, leading them to the final of the 1994 World Cup eventually losing to Brazil in penalties.

He then had another spell with Milan but couldn't emulate the same kind of success as before. He failed to win any trophies in his second stint which eventually led to his sacking. He spent a brief spell with Atletico Madrid before eventually retiring in 2001 with Parma.

How did Arrigo Sacchi's tactics change the game of football in Italy?

Prior to his arrival at Milan, most teams in the country had been focused on keeping possession and playing slowly. Sacchi changed all that with his high-pressing, quick-passing style. Sacchi's first goal at Milan was to change the team's culture. He wanted his players to stop thinking about defending close to their own goal and become a proactive team that defended against opposition attacks. Sacchi's AC Milan side were incredibly successful, winning back-to-back European Cups in 1989 and 1990. They were also the first Italian team to win a domestic league title using this style of play. Sacchi's tactics had a huge impact on the way football was played in Italy. As a result, Italian football became much more exciting and attacking.
