If Serie A leader Napoli is going to win its first title in nearly three decades, a large part of the squad's success will be attributed to a manager who is the ultimate anti-establishment character.Not since Arrigo Sacchi arrived at AC Milan 30 years ago has Italian soccer seen a coach so revolutionary, someone willing to attack relentlessly with free-flowing ball movement and constant running that comes across as an evolution of Pep Guardiola's tactics.Before and after City beat Napoli twice in the Champions League this season, Guardiola heaped praise on Sarri and Napoli for displaying "the most beautiful football in Europe".Sarri, however, has been responsible for transforming players like Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon into world-class strikers.It was in Sarri's first season at Napoli that Gonzalo Higuain resurrected his career by scoring 36 goals to break a 66-year-old Serie A record.
