“Nothing to regret, we have to thank this team that did all it could”: this i show Arrigo Sacchi, the technical coordinator of the National youth teams of the FIGC commented the second place finish of the Under 21 in the European Championships at the microphones of Radio 24.
“There was another team – continued Sacchi – that like us had half their players coming front he B league and that team was England, which recorded zero points. Our Under team eliminated The Netherlands, that two months ago was the team that played against our major National team”.
Having always focused on the importance of breeding grounds and ready to count on the young players, the coordinator insisted on a concept: “The clubs have little trust in the younger players? When the play becomes centrality, the players become fantastic interpreters. If the player is centrality, then the younger player cannot have the knowledge and experience of a more expert players. Ours is an hysterical and confusing environment, while long-term planning is necessary with the younger players. a
Italy risks remaining behind, and Sacchi explained the reason: “It is not a question of mentality, but of ignorance. It is as if great actors were chosen to act in a film without a plot, or as if there were not script for a play, no sheet music for music. Music is created by a great musician or everyone just plays whatever they want. Spain and others have already understood this concept…..” .
