Bags in tackle on Balotelli. After yesterday’s performance at the draw against Poland, the former coach of the national team does not use half terms against the attacker of Nice: “I would say that you play as a team. You have to have few but clear ideas, “he told Radio Deejay microphones.” Soccer is a collective sport and intelligence matters more than the feet. So, first I would choose players who have intelligence. We need generosity, passion, professionalism. 
Everyone has a car, but to get it moving, you need gas. And in football, petrol is intelligence, passion, professionalism. Here, let’s say that the team spirit is enough: already that makes you a worthy person “.
UNDER 21 – Regarding the alarm launched by the technical commissioner Roberto Mancini, who claimed more space for young Italians, Sacchi was also clear on Under 21, beaten 3-0 by Slovakia: “The players of the Underworld have had a shameful attitude. They were presumptuous and arrogant. 
Often in football real enemies are not the adversaries, we are ourselves ». The former technical commissioner added: “This is a country in which to win would sell the soul to the devil: there is no difference between a deserved and a little deserved victory. But the little-deserved one brings little future into oneself. “
FEDERATION – Finally, a sting to the Federcalcio, because of the lack of a long-term project: “The federation, with its ideas and its vision, counts more than the team and the coach, as the team counts more than the single. 
Instead, this is a country where the individual counts the most: and the Federation does not impose rules because it seeks power more than a project useful for football. Try not to ever make enemies, so everyone is happy never to please anyone. Our football lacks pride: today, coaching the national team is even more difficult “.
