Just weeks after guiding Chelsea to Europa League success, Maurizio Sarri left Chelsea for Juventus with the Italian claiming he wanted to be close to home.
Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola was Sarri’s assistant at Chelsea and he believes Chelsea were wrong to let Sarri leave for Juventus.
Asked if he would have liked to stay at Chelsea, Zola told talkSPORT: “Yes, very much.
“I think the best of Maurizio’s work comes not in the first year but more from the second year onwards.
“Looking at the way he works, it takes a little bit of time to put in place what he wants to do and also he is very demanding on the players.
“But, after the players get used to it, they get better and better and the work becomes more effective.
“It’s a pity, because I think it would have been good for the club if Maurizio stayed and it would have been good for Maurizio as well.”
In defence of Chelsea, Sarri wasn’t sacked by the club but asked to leave for Juventus. Well, fans have been reacting to Zola’s comments.
What do you think about Zola’s comments? Should Chelsea have kept Sarri at the club against his will?
