Capello praises Juventus coach Sarri's 'total football'

Former Juventus coach Fabio Capello has praised the work of Maurizio Sarri.

Matthijs de Ligt says Sarri plays "total football".

“If De Ligt says it, then who am I to contradict him?" noted Capello in Tuttosport.

“However, I wouldn't just say that Sarri deserves this tag, because there are other Italians who have a similar conception of football. I will say that I watched Sarri's work at Chelsea too and he is a coach capable of adapting to the players he has at that moment. I consider that a very intelligent attitude.

“It means that Sarri is both practical and with an attacking, winning mentality."
