Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelino: Sacchi and Benitez my biggest influences

Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelino admits there's two managerial greats he admires.

Marcelino makes the admission on his new personal website.

He declared on marcelinogarciatoral.com: "My influences basically come from two great names: Arrigo Sacchi and Rafa Benítez.

"Sacchi built the perfect team, a machine that never failed. The main characteristic of a Rafa team is the way they compete. I love the way he manages the squad. (Pep) Guardiola, (Diego) Simeone or (Jurgen) Klopp are also coaches I look at because they prepare a team to win and with maximum capacity.

"The proper configuration of a squad is very important to me, with a base of players who have a feeling of belonging to the club. This provides a fundamental degree of stability for any successful team."
