Former AC Milan, Parma, Atletico Madrid and Azzurri manager, Arrigo Sacchi, wrote an intriguing and detailed analysis about the recent Bayern Munich elimination of Juventus in the Champions League (aggregate of 4-0 for the Germans).
Mr. Sacchi made incisive comments not only about this particular Champions League tie, but also, how Italian football needed to change. He felt that the Germans presented Juventus individually, and Italian football collectively, with a much-needed lesson in total football.
Let's see what Mr. Sacchi had to say.
