Chelsea Job Much Tougher Than Managing Napoli – Maurizio Sarri

share on:

Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri believes he has a harder job at The Blues than Carlo Ancelotti does succeeding him at Italian side Napoli.

Maurizio Sarri replaced Antonio Conte as coach at Stamford Bridge in July

The 59-year-old has made an impressive start with Chelsea, who are unbeaten after four League matches, whereas Napoli suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Sampdoria at the weekend.

However, Sarri is fully aware that Conte secured the Premier League and FA Cup during his two-year spell in charge at Chelsea, while he failed to claim any silverware at Napoli in three seasons.

“I won nothing at Napoli,” he said. “Conte, on the other hand, won here and it’s difficult to take his place.

He added: “Here it is totally different: it is an absolute party, it is a pleasure to arrive in the stadiums and see the fans with different shirts take a beer together. I sign autographs to the fans of the opposing team on the sidelines, before and after the match. There are games with so much intensity, physicality. The English way is a different football from the Italian one, played in extraordinary stadiums.

“How do I see Italy now I live in London? Close up, full of problems. But when we are far away, there is a bit of nostalgia and something is always missing, like the food, although I’m getting used to meat and salmon here.”
