Guardiola has set bar high, says Sacchi

29 August 2012 19:45

Former Italy manager Arrigo Sacchi said Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova will struggle to match what Pep Guardiola achieved at Camp Nou.

The 66-year-old has given his endorsement to the new man at the helm of the Catalan side, but insisted it will be very tough to be as successful as his predecessor.

"I like Tito Vilanova, but, I think it will be difficult for him to repeat what Pep did," Sacchi said in an interview with Esports COPE.

"Going after a coach like Guardiola is very complicated."

Sacchi then went on to talk about a number of players that have been on the move in this summer's transfer window, including Bojan Krkic who has signed with AC Milan.

"I hope things go well for him at Milan. For both his sake and the team's," he continued.

"He started as one of the most promising young players, but then he lost the way a little. Hopefully he can get his career back on track at the Rossoneri.

"At Barcelona, after failing to adapt, he was moved on to Roma. I have confidence in him and think that at Milan he can succeed."

A one-time sporting director at Real Madrid, Sacchi also gave his views on the capital side's latest signing, Luka Modric.

"He is a great signing for Madrid. He is very much a modern footballer, good both on and off the ball. I really like him," he said.

While he praised Real's latest acquisition, he questioned Barcelona's signing of Alex Song.

"He (Song) is a very good player, but Barca already have Busquets and Mascherano who can play in the same position, so I am not sure about this signing."
