JUST IN: Chelsea Appoints New Coach
Maurizio Sarri has officially been appointed as the new manager for Chelsea following the sacking of erstwhile manager, Antonio Conte on Friday.
The 59-year old who was handed a three-year contract and unveiled on Saturday has said that he is eager to get down to work with the likes of Victor Moses and the rest of the Chelsea superstars.
He 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.
‘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.’
Though with no silverware to show for his efforts, Sarri is credited for revitalizing the fortunes of his last club, Napoli and he returned them to the Champions League while playing a scintillating brand of expansive, attacking football which many hope Chelsea will attack going forward.
