Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“I played him there because I wanted to see the solution with the three small players.“I think that at this moment it is a very good solution because we are not less dangerous in the offensive phase.“And in the defensive phase, we are more balanced.
