Arrigo Sacchi may have been one of the great managerial innovators but even he is impressed by the top coaching talent in the Premier League.

The English top flight is blessed with the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino and there have been comparisons between those coaches and Sacchi himself.

But, speaking to Sportsmail, Sacchi — who managed AC Milan to consecutive European Cups in 1989 and 1990 — is convinced that the likes of Guardiola and Klopp have moved the game along even further.
