Arrigo Sacchi speaks about Mesbah and Milan

Legendary Italian football coach Arrigo Sacchi had few things to say about his days as Milan coach, Mesbah and Milan.
Sacchi: "Mesbah is a good player, and he will get a lot better at Milan. Mesbah is fast and he covers the flank well when the team attacks. Perhaps he should improve the defensive aspect of his game. Generally, I believe that Mesbah is a good player, otherwise Milan wouldn’t have signed him.
In Italy people tend to think that they’re the best and that an Algerian can’t do any good, but it’s not like that, Mesbah has demonstrated the opposite. Every 20 years there is a team that makes history in football: Ajax, Milan and now Barça, it’s impossible to have 2-3 teams like that at the same time. When Ajax dominated football, other clubs wanted to imitate them, but they didn't manage to do it. The same thing happened with Milan and now with Barça.
Everyone wants to do like Barça, but it’s not easy to have so many good players and all the automatisms and mechanisms at the same time.
How I managed implement such spectacular football in Italy? I was simply supported by the directors. They had a strong faith in me. At Milan you first and foremost need to win, and if I made them win convincingly then they couldn’t say no to me.
Furthermore I had players of a really high class and they accepted my football philosophy."
