Arrigo Sacchi (born 1 April 1946 in Fusignano) is an Italian football coach, the former head coach of the Italy national football team (1991-1996), and twice manager of A.C. Milan (1987-1991, 1996-1997).

Sacchi never played football professionally, and before becoming a coach he was a shoe salesman.

As manager of the Italian national team, Sacchi helped Italy reach the final of the 1994 World Cup, losing to Brazil on penalties. At club level, most notably he managed A.C. Milan. His first spell there was a notable success, with domestic trophies - winning the Serie A title in 1988, the Italian Super Cup in 1989 - developing into success at European level and beyond: the European Cup in 1989 and 1990, and the European Super Cup and Intercontinental Cup in 1990 and 1991.

Sacchi has also managed Parma AC (1985-1987 and 2001) and Atlético Madrid (1998-1999). In December 2004 he was appointed director of football at Spanish giants Real Madrid, replacing Jorge Valdano. Club president Florentino Pérez said that the board had decided to appoint Sacchi so that he could bring his substantial experience to help make the club more professional. "We did not want someone to coach the team but someone who can help organise and plan everything to do with football at the club and Arrigo Sacchi was the ideal candidate."[1]

However, Sacchi resigned after the Real Madrid head coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo was fired for a string of bad results, notably a 3-0 defeat at home against arch-rivals F.C. Barcelona, and was succeeded by Predrag Mijatović.
