Regarded as one of the best managers in the world, Arrigo Sacchi has won every major title to date. He has said that it will be very difficult for the replacement of Pep Guardiola at the camp Nou, Tito Villanova to match the achievements of his predecessor. Guardiola had one of the most successful spells as the Barcelona manager after he led them to an unprecedented 16 titles in just four seasons including numerous Champions League and la Liga titles. It has put Guardiola alongside the likes of Arrigo Sacchi, and it is something that his successor will not be able to achieve according to the Italian.
The 66-year-old, though, has said that he is confident that Tito Villanova will be successful, but whether he can be as successful as Guardiola remains to be seen. Tito Villanova has been promoted from his role as the assistant manager at the club. He has started the life as the Barcelona manager with two wins out of the two matches. This coupled with the poor form shown by Real Madrid has meant that Barcelona already have a five point advantage at the top of the table, which will be a significant advantage according to Arrigo Sacchi.
“I like Tito Vilanova, but, I think it will be difficult for him to repeat what Pep did. Going after a coach like Guardiola is very complicated. I hope things go well for him at Milan. For both his sake and the team’s. He started as one of the most promising young players, but then he lost his way a little. Hopefully he can get his career back on track with the Rossoneri. At Barcelona, after failing to adapt, he was moved on to Roma. I have confidence in him and think that at Milan he can succeed,” said the Italian.
