Sacchi: Milan is embarrassing

Former AC Milan manager Arrigo Sacchi has labeled the club "embarrassing" after Juventus secured their fifth consecutive Scudetto on Sunday.

The Turin giants' 2-1 win over Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi secured the title in empathic fashion with three games to spare while Milan languish in sixth in the Serie A standings, 32 points adrift of the leaders.

Sacchi feels the Rossoneri hierarchy has failed the Milan faithful and can't understand how a club of their magnitude can decline so quickly in such a short period of time.

"Before [Antonio] Conte and [Massimiliano] Allegri, they [the Juventus boardroom] were the creators of this wonderful sporting phenomenon," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"There is now an embarrassing gap between Juventus and Milan, who spend their time debating issues of internal organisation, strategy and competence.

"They [the Milan board] do not transmit clarity in their plans and have made choices that have had negative consequences for the club. For coaches to create a successful team, they need people with ideas, energy and enthusiasm running the club."
