Juventus Confirm Appointment of Sarri


Juventus have confirmed the appointment of Maurizio Sarri on a three-year deal.

The Italian leaves Chelsea for the Bianconeri after a solitary season at Stamford Bridge.

Despite opposition from a section of the Blues support, Sarri guided the Blues back to the Champions League with a third-placed finish and won the Europa League during his time in south-west London.

He also reached the final of the Capital One Cup, where Chelsea were beaten on penalties by Manchester City.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "In talks we had following the Europa League final, Maurizio made it clear how strongly he desired to return to his native country, explaining that his reasons for wanting to return to work in Italy were significant.

"He also believed it important to be nearer his family, and for the well-being of his elderly parents he felt he needed to live closer to them at this point.

"Maurizio leaves Chelsea with thanks from us all for the work he and his assistants did during the season he spent as our head coach, and for winning the Europa League, guiding us to another cup final and a third-place finish in the Premier League.

"We would also like to congratulate him on securing the role as big as any in Serie A and to wish him the best of luck for the future."
