Sarri Has Hot Takes on His Time at Juventus and Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri looked back at his season at Juventus and didn’t spare criticism toward the Bianconeri’s hierarchy for their mentality at the time. He chatted with La Repubblica.

“Everything was owed there. We just had to win the Champions League, but that was a corrupt message. We took home the Scudetto with a group that was at the end of its cycle. The management appointed me because they wanted to change their style but weren’t fully convinced to go through with it.”

Sarri regrets leaving Chelsea so soon.

“I struggled to fit into an atypical club at first, as they didn’t have a director and coaches didn’t last long. But I had fun in the last few months and made a mistake by leaving. Not necessarily the Blues, which would have kept me, but the Premier League in general since its beauty is unique. Coming back to Italy was an error.”

Sarri would like to end his career at Lazio.

“If I think about the future, I’d like to coach them in the new Flaminio stadium. Claudio Lotito believes in the project, but he wants guarantees. I’d like to retire with the Biancocelesti. I can’t set a timeframe because it’s not only up to me.”

Sarri has also been tepidly linked to Saudi Arabia.

“Can you smoke there? If so, let’s see. In any case, it’s not something that can be planned today.”
