The former Milan coach believes that the Catalans success in La Liga leaves them complacent and warns the Rossoneri not to fear the Catalan giants in the Champions League
Arrigo Sacchi believes Barcelona have become┬á relaxed in their style of football after the departure of former boss Pep Guardiola.
Sacchi, who won two European Cups while managing AC Milan, believes that the Liga leaders – who sit 11 points clear at the top – have lost some of their prowess.
“Barcelona are not so exciting because Guardiola has gone,” the 66-year old told reporters.
“Easily winning the league┬áhas probably relaxed the team. Lately I’ve seen a bad image of Barcelona which is unknown for this team.”
But┬áthe former Rossoneri coach is still wary of the threat of the Blaugrana, who are 2-0 down in their Champions League last 16 tie after Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari scored for the Serie A side in the first leg.┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á┬á ”Milan can run the risk of being defeated if they are afraid,” Sacchi warned.
