In his editorial for Tuttosport , Fabio Ravezzani has extolled the work of Antonio Conte, expressing a clear concept about his preferences in terms of coaches: "I confess that I have never been attracted by the so-called" masters "of football. The great thinkers who study oiled schemes like Swiss watches to make the whole team move in sync with rapid and spectacular results.It was said: they look for the show, the others the results, poor things … It was said: a hundred times better to lose by playing well and in attack than to win defending himself sadly, so the fashion of the last summer (because football is made even if not above fashion) imposed the professor on the bench. You will see, they guaranteed us, the everlasting era of organized football has arisen. quick, aware and projected towards the show. Suddenly coaches like Allegri and Gattuso have gone through museum pieces, to be ashamed of even a little. Spalletti himself was regarded with suspicion. Juve and Milan immediately adapted to the new rules. Away the old coaches, guilty of not knowing how to organize the game decently, and inside the thinkers, generally a bit shabby in clothing and surly, almost annoyed in the exposition of their tactical dogmas. What happened was quickly seen. Sarri part full of schemes, expectations, premises and promises. But in the field we see very little. Someone defies fate and arrows of the great Sacchian supporters and whispers (horror …) that Juve plays more or less like last year. In the end the Tuscan technician is forced to abjure the sacred trappings of organized football: "I was a Taliban, now no longer". Allegri, in the shadows, smiles. Milan went even worse. Yeah, because Giampaolo didn't have any phenomenon in front of him able to make him win through the flash of a goal despite the shapeless game of the team. He left us his feathers, by dint of professing a new incomprehensible verb. And, strangely enough, what happens in the summer nobody expected. That is, the normal Pioli arrives, who in the general skepticism inculcates some effective pattern in the heads of the players and here is the miracle: Milan maybe does not win, but has offensive game, ideas, clearness in the actions and often even amusing (then missing a capable striker to throw it in, but this is beyond the ability of the coach). In the interviews the Rossoneri players express devastating concepts for the fundamentalists of the tactics: "Before we didn't understand well what we had to do …". Which suggests that either they were a gang of morons, or that the previous coach had such sophisticated ideas that he couldn't even explain them well, making them useless. After the summer of great theorists and thinkers, the autumn-winter trend of football season 2019/20 has already changed. Today the Conte model works all-out: determined, haunting, aggressive, pounding. Those who want to change think of Gattuso, not a professor. The intellectual fashion on the bench lasted the space of a scheme (wrong) ".
