[Stefano Tacconi on greatest italian] Is Gigi the best in Italian history? No, but he is the best of his generation. For the greatest, there’s Zoff. And even during my era there was Zenga, and then Peruzzi. But Buffon is a great goalkeeper. He has done great things and he’s the best of his generation. And he could still be like Zoff – he could play in the World Cup in 40. He is still in shape and playing well. I certainly hope he makes it to Russia

I had to call L’Avvocato [Gianni] Agnelli to get it. Before the Supercoppa against Napoli, some of my teammates asked me to persuade him not to play zonally because no-one had understood his style of play yet. He decided we should mark Maradona zonally and we conceded five!

There’s a huge gulf between them. Trap’s someone who has played football and knows everything about players. The other coach, his name I won’t even mention because he brings bad luck, arrived as the new prophet of football who won while having fun, and instead he was a disaster. Like many coaches who have never kicked a football, they struggle to understand it and I’d go even further than that: they don’t understand anything
