Arrigo Sacchi (-itarˈriɡo ˈsakki; born 1 April 1946 in Fusignano) is an Italian football coach. He is best known for his success coaching Italian teams, particularly with Milan where he won back to back European Cups as coach in the late eighties where he was head coach of the Italy national football team (1991 1996). He was 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. This led to his famous quote to the ones that questioned his qualifications: "I never realised that in order to become a jockey you have to have been a horse first".
