Former Juventus chief Luciano Moggi has hit out at Chelsea’s appointment of Maurizio Sarri as the new Chelsea boss, having sacked Antonio Contein the summer.

Having led the Blues to Premier League title success in his first season at the club, Conte’s exit from Stamford Bridge was confirmed in July despite the team lifting the FA Cup with a 1-0 win over Manchester United.

Moggi has hit out at the decision and called it “absurd”, hinting that there’s a vast difference in playing system between the two managers, and that it could sometimes be difficult for the players to adapt.

“Depending on the players at the club,” he said. “It’s absurd to hire Sarri at Chelsea after they played with Conte for two years.

“At Napoli, after Sarri, Carlo Ancelotti or Fabio Capello would go well because they play unified football.

“It wouldn’t be as good with Conte or Marcelo Lippi.”
