Maurizio Sarri is set to become Juventus boss after the Italian champions reached an agreement with Chelsea on Thursday night.
Despite leading the Blues to a third place finish in the Premier League and Europa League success last season, Sarri wants to return to his homeland.
According to The Sun, Sarri decided he would quit his role as Chelsea boss after Chelsea fans chanted “Sarri out” and “f*** Sarri-ball” during the win over Cardiff in March.
With the Blues trailing relegation-battlers Cardiff 1-0, a large section of the Chelsea fans chanted “f*** Sarri-ball” and “Sarri out”.
Chelsea then went on to win the game 2-1 with late goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Despite winning his first trophy as a manager by humiliating rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final, Sarri still pushed to leave Chelsea for Juventus due to problems winning over Chelsea fans and receiving little backing from club chiefs.
Chelsea and Juventus have agreed a £7million compensation package that will see Sarri leave Chelsea for Juventus with Chelsea legend Frank Lampard to take his place in the Chelsea dugout.
Chelsea legend Didier Drogba believes Lampard is a very good option for Chelsea.
“I think it is a very good option for the club,” Drogba said. “He has done well with Derby, taking the team to the play-off final.”
