Chelsea News: Maurizio Sarri makes a controversial statement about Chelsea just after he left the Blues for Juventus last week.
Maurizio Sarri has made a controversial statement about his former club, and surprisingly made it just after a week of leaving the London based club.
According to a report by the Express, Maurizio Sarri has called Chelsea a team of individuals, while comparing to his another former club Napoili, which he describes as a team, which could play well together.
It comes after the Italian manager failed to implement his style of play with the Blues, and received massive criticism from the fans for it, as it was not being effective for Chelsea.
Sarri made the comments during his official unveiling as Juventus’ new coach on Thursday morning after being asked about his one-season spell at Stamford Bridge.
On the other hand, Sarri always insisted that his style of play namely as “Sarri ball” would take time for its absolute implementation and would give results eventually. However, Chelsea’s hierarchy were not patient enough and decided to move onn.
Reflecting back on the differences between Chelsea and Napoli, Sarri told reporters:
“Chelsea is a team made up of players, probably who have a higher technical level but with individual characteristics.They have p layers who play on the flank, want to play one v ones so from that point of view, the football they play is less fluid, less smooth.
“I arrived from the lower divisions, from Empoli to Napoli then Chelsea, they were all sceptical, the supporters were sceptical,” he said.
“I thought there would be less scepticism but it’s normal there is scepticism and criticism. There is one way to remove it, to win – that’s the only way. To entertain and obtain results. I don’t see any other way.”
He added: “The world of the English media is well known to everyone – there are some great newspapers and also some tabloids, whose quality is lower.
“All the criticism, attacks and pressure you have to undergo will strengthen you and become stronger.” he concluded.
Sarri is set to continue with his managerial career at Juventus by replacing Massimiliano Allegri from the Turin based club.

Sarri :"I come from Chelsea, another big club, clearly with less history than Juventus, because their level only raised over the last 10-15 years."

Though I agree to an extent, what would be the reason for getting rid of Sarri, Conte, Di, Matteo, All won trophies but were effctively sacked. Truth is, if Chelsea dont win the treble then thats reason enough to sack the Manager. On thosr grounds , Lamps doesnt stand a chance!!
