Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis still hasn’t forgotten about Maurizio Sarri and has again hit out at Sarri, who’s no longer with the Naples club.
Sarri left Napoli at the end of last season, after guiding them to second spot on the table in what was Napoli’s highest ever point in the Serie A.
Despite appointing Carlo Ancelotti to replace Sarri during the summer, De Laurentiis has warned Chelsea that the ex-Napoli Coach ‘always gets sacked’ and is a ‘stiff’ person.
Sarri seems to be doing well with the Blues and have led Chelsea to five straight wins while playing the amazing Sarri-ball, but De Laurentiis could not resist taking a dig at his former employee.
“I’m always close to the team, also because I chose Ancelotti and I’m responsible, like I was with Sarri,” De Laurentiis told reporters.
“This time, however, I feel calmer. Sarri’s doing very well, but he’s suffered many defeats in his life and he was always getting sacked.
“A person stiffened in his human relationships came out of those experiences.”
This isn’t the first time De Laurentiis has hit out at Sarri since he left Napoli, as the Napoli president took a dig at Sarri just last month for not being able to win the league. But Sarri dismissed his talks and hinted that De Lauretiis is obsessed with him.
“I don’t know but maybe he is talking about me because he is missing me,” said Sarri.
“We didn’t win in Naples but we had the record number of points for the club.
“We qualified three times for the Champions League and it was unusual for Napoli.
“So I think we did very well. Nobody won in Italy except Juventus in the last seven years.”
