coach, who won Scudetto and two European Cups with Milan, believes that the Rossoneri can pick up the Scudetto under

Pioli

.

Milan have not been defeated yet in the current season and tops the Serie A table after seven rounds and its former coach believes winning Scudetto for the Rossoneri is possible if they take advantage of the slow start by other teams.

“There’s only one secret to reach the finish line,” Sacchi said. “Believing in yourself, the game and the work you are doing.

“Milan can win the Scudetto in this strange championship, but Pioli’s men must be even more confident, more ruthless and more generous.

“Only in this way, they will be able to overcome the competition of opponents who now, perhaps, are snoozing. But sooner or later, they will jump forward.”

Milan have also bought in new young group of players like

Sandro Tonali

,

Diogo Dalot

,

Brahim Diaz

and

Jens Petter Hauge

and have renewed their deal with

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

.

“I say it again. Milan have the quality to fight for the title on one condition: that you point to the group and not an individual.

“If he will, and since Pioli is a good and intelligent coach, I’m sure he will behave accordingly, and we will see even greater collaboration between the players.

“There will be synchronous movements, the team will be tighter, and the pressing can be implemented more efficiently.

“The important thing is to make the whole group understand that the game is fundamental, there’s nothing above the play and you can only achieve success through the game.”

The former tactician also talked about Ibrahimovic.

“A true champion. He’s an authentic example,” Sacchi added. “Did you see what he did against

Verona

?

“He missed the penalty, and a normal player could have gotten depressed, but he was even more charged and went to get the draw.

“He has a crazy personality, sometimes he must keep it under control. He can’t be too demanding with his teammates and scold them if they miss a pass.

“Sometimes it’s better to embrace than handing out a blow. But I see that others consider him their leader and that’s important.”
