The appointment of Maurizio Sarri could see Chelsea play the football that many at Stamford Bridge are desperate to see as he says he wants to bring “entertaining football” to Chelsea after becoming their manager on a three-year deal.
Sarri led Napoli to two second-place finishes in his three seasons in charge of the Serie A side, who named Carlo Ancelotti as his successor in May.
Yes, it can be a strange old place and a 59-year-old former banker with a long history of unsavory behavior makes for an even stranger youth icon, but Sarri has something they want. He has a knack for producing the flowing football that Chelsea fans feel they are being denied. There is a craving for change and Sarri offers it in spades, triangles and transitions.
The 59-year-old replaces fellow Italian Antonio Conte, who was sacked on Friday after two years at Stamford Bridge.
“It is an exciting new period in my career,” said Sarri
Chelsea formally announced the appointment of Sarri, on a three-year contract, and the signing of midfielder Jorginho, on a five-year deal, on Saturday July 14,2018.
