I could see everything three times as fast and flew like a rocket. I had the most fun as a player at Genoa. All my experience came into its own. I wanted a completely free role up front, and that is precisely what the Sampdoria manager, Sven-Göran Eriksson, gave me. At Chelsea, it was exactly the same under Glenn Hoddle, although Glenn kept me out of the defensive lineup because I took too many risks. The package I brought with me from AC Milan was perfect for Sampdoria and Chelsea. In Genoa I was a striker alongside Mancini and I scored sixteen goals in thirty-one league games in the 1993/94 season.
In fact they penetrate even faster and deeper to build pressure in the other half. A key reason for giving the other side space was that if we attacked too soon the ball would go straight back to the keeper. So there was no point putting the other side under pressure too early. In those days keepers could still pick up a ball from a back pass. The rule wasn’t changed until 1992. The new rule makes it easier for a team to put the other side under pressure. You can go twenty or thirty meters closer to the opposing goal: which leaves the other side far less space to build.

Sacchi would always want to hold discussions in his office. I preferred talking on the pitch, when the moment was still fresh in the memory and everyone could picture the situation you were talking about.
