After a three-year spell at Napoli, Maurizio Sarri signed for Chelsea during the summer and was appointed as the manager of the club, to take over from Antonio Conte.
Sarri’s reign at Stamford Bridge has been very successful so far, and the Chelsea boss has got Chelsea playing in a swagger that’s being adored across Europe.
The Blues are playing attractive football and confidence has also returned to the team, and of course Chelsea’s fear factor has returned as the Blues still remain unbeaten this season.
Sarri’s father has revealed that although his son is happy in England, he could easily have stayed with his boyhood club, Napoli.
“At school he cheered for Napoli because he was born there,” Amerigo Sarri told FirenzeViola.
“Naples remains in his heart and he would have gladly stayed to coach Napoli, but unfortunately something happened with the president, I don’t know.”
Amerigo Sarri revealed that he saw his son two weeks ago, and that the Chelsea boss is very happy in England.
He said: “In any case, he’s very happy in England [with Chelsea].
“I went to see him a fortnight ago and for the first time I saw one of his matches. He’s very happy in England, and he’s always been able to speak English.”
