Maurizio Sarri has spent his entire coaching career in Italy, and the Italian achieved fame after guiding Napoli to one of their best ever seasons in the Serie A, playing an exciting brand of football that has been nicknamed ‘Sarriball’.
The 59-year-old is coming to England to manage for the first time, and the new Chelsea boss has drawn the difference between the English league and the Serie A.
“For me this is a difficult challenge but a fascinating one. I know it will be very difficult, here we have the strongest coaches and players in world, so I know it will be an extremely difficult challenge,” he said in his press conference on Wednesday.
“The Premier League is different from Serie A because it is stronger. Serie A is tactically difficult but here there are stronger players. However I do not want to upset anything, I need to have fun in order to do well and in the last couple of years something has changed in the Premier League as well, it is not typically English in terms of playing and this has given me confidence.”
