"The Bianconeri should have signed fewer players and concentrated on signing champions," he told Radio Radio.

"Their money would have been better spent on men at the level of Gigi Buffon, whom I consider to be the Maradona of goalkeepers, but at least Claudio Ranieri is a good addition."

However, Sacchi has more respect for Milan's decision to bring in striking starlet Alexandre Pato.

"Signing Pato is in keeping with modern football. The Rossoneri squad is too old and there is a high risk of injuries during the season, so he is valuable young cover."
