AC Milan coach Rino Gattuso is full of praise for Napoli counterpart Maurizio Sarri.
Milan and Napoli face-off on Sunday afternoon.
Gattuso said, “When you face big Coaches like Sarri, Max Allegri and Eusebio Di Francesco, you can only watch, learn and set it aside. We know the way they play, they make their opponents dizzy with the passing game, but we must do everything well to get a result.
“I appreciate the fact Napoli keep possession for a reason, they know where they want to end up and how to get there. The defensive lines are spectacular too, they time it perfectly.
“Sarri and I have some things in common, for example our look could do with some work… Joking aside, Sarri is a maestro and has brought something new to football. He can be considered among the greats.
“I met him only once, in Palermo-Empoli, and you could already see his style of football. He drove us mad, especially on set plays. I can only learn from him and it’s an honour to face his team.”
