After so much dilly dallying, Chelsea have confirmed the appointment of former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri as their manager, per reports.
The Italian tactician put pen to paper on a three year deal with Chelsea and he has promised to change the outlook of the Blues pattern to an entertaining form.
Conte returned to Chelsea last weekend with speculation over his future, but the Blues brass paid him off and sacked him on Friday. It was claimed that Conte was at loggerhead with his employers over their transfer dealings and it didn’t go well with Roman Abramovich.
The Blues are yet to confirm the signing of any player in the transfer window and Sarri now has only 22 days to prepare for the upcoming season, which kicks-off for them with the curtain-raiser against Manchester City. Nonetheless, he has laid bare his delight over the move and also reveal how he will transform the Blues’ game.
Sarri said: “I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League. It is an exciting new period in my career.”
“I look forward to starting work and meeting the players on Monday ahead of travelling to Australia, where I will be able to get to know the squad and begin our match action,” Sarri added.
“I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves.”
Sarri led Napoli to ending two seasons in second place behind Juventus but he is poised to go one better than he did in the Seria A.
