Chelsea have finally confirmed the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as the club’s new manager.

Just a day after confirming the sack of Antonio Conte, the club has now made Sarri the new manager, ending months of rumours and speculations.

Sarri has signed a three-year contract with the Blues that will keep him in charge of Stamford Bridge until 2021.

Chelsea released a statement via its official website, thus: “Maurizio Sarri is the new Chelsea head coach. He moves to Stamford Bridge following a successful three-year spell at Serie A side Napoli.

“During his time there, the Italian, who is 59, revitalised the fortunes of the club and returned them to the Champions League while playing a scintillating brand of expansive, attacking football.

“In his three years at the helm, Napoli recorded two second-place finishes in their domestic league, including last season when they achieved a record points total for a runner-up, and one third place. In 2017, he won the Serie A Coach of the Year award.”
