AC Milan legend Arrigo Sacchi says signing Divock Origi won’t be as important as maintaining their title winning mentality.
Origi is due to sign for Liverpool in a free transfer from Liverpool.
But Sacchi in a chat TribalFootball said, “Milan have proved that the collective is always superior to single players.
“The best signing Milan can make is having the same motivation and team spirit that helped them win the Scudetto.

“They must overcome the precarity of success and have new targets. Playing style and collective are the ingredients to improve. That’s what Milan must do, regardless of new signings, Origi or anyone else.”
Origi had been mulling over a lucrative offer from Milan after a season when his opportunities have been limited.
The Belgium international failed to play enough games this season to trigger an extension clause in his contract.
He has largely been limited to a squad role during his time at the club, having only started two league games over the past two campaigns, as well as spending the 2017-18 season on loan at Wolfsburg.
The 27-year-old has, however, had some iconic moments at the club since moving to Liverpool from Lille in 2015. Notably, he scored twice against Barcelona during the famous Champions League semi-final comeback at Anfield in 2019, netted the winner in the Merseyside derby against Everton a year earlier, and came off the bench to make it 2-0 in the 2019 Champions League final.
