Ex-Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri reveals ‘conflicted’ relationship with players during turbulent reign


Maurizio Sarri has revealed how he shared a “conflicted relationship” with his Chelsea squad but admits he misses the Premier League, describing it as “extraordinary”.

The former Blues coach left after just one season in charge in west London, replacing Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus in June 2019.

Sarri had guided Chelsea to their second Europa League trophy with a 4-1 win over Arsenal in Baku and secured a third-place finish in the Premier League, confirming the club’s qualification for the Champions League.

But it was not always a smooth operation for the 61-year-old. He had a public falling out with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga during the Carabao Cup Final and was left on the brink of the sack following Chelsea’s worst-ever defeat in the Premier League, a 6-0 humbling at the hands of Manchester City.

Speaking to Juventus’ official YouTube channel via video link, Sarri lifted the lid on his tenure at Stamford Bridge.
