In an interview, Capello recalled his experience of coaching Milan. He did not hesitate to say that Milan was very strong during the Dutch Three Musketeers, and Savicevic was the kind of student who didn't need a teacher to teach.
Capello said: "I remember I was still coaching the Milan youth team, then Berlusconi called me to temporarily coach the Milan first team. Of course I promised him."
"Actually, Milan had Sacchi at that time, but there was a conflict between Sacchi and some players. He hoped that the club would sell those players, but Berlusconi decided to change coaches and keep the players."
"Then I led Milan to play 5 games. That was the first time I coached Milan. In my career as coaching Milan, the three Dutch Musketeers impressed me. They are all very strong, but Savičević is even more phenomenal. Level player. I used to spend three months for him to understand my tactics, until at the end I suddenly realized that it is enough to hand the ball to him. He is the kind of student who doesn't need a teacher to teach."
