City began the campaign in a difficult way and Guardiola called Sacchi for advice.
"Guardiola called me in November at a most critical moment. I said, 'They don't press'.
"Pep improves the championships in which he plays because he transmits knowledge and courage, as my Milan did, in fact in those years in Europe the other Italian teams also won. In the last ten years, no one has won.
"Atalanta and Milan are the teams that play the best. Atalanta makes the best pressure. Nobody has 11 always-on men like Gasperini, Conte is on the right track. You can see that he is fighting and fighting against some old habits."
