Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri talks to La Repubblica about his time at Juventus. The 64-year-old coach revealed that signing for Juventus, and above all returning to Italy, was a mistake for him. He would have liked to stay in the Premier League, even though he has left Chelsea in 2019.
“It was all down to Juve and we simply had to win the Champions League, but it’was a contaminated message. I won the championship with a group at the end of its cycle and a club that hired me because they had the desire but not the conviction to change their style. At Chelsea, I found it hard to immerse myself in an atypical club with no sporting director, where no coach could last two years. But over the last few months, I’ve been enjoying myself and I was wrong to want to leave, not so much Chelsea, which would also have kept me, but the Premier League, a context of unique beauty. Coming back to Italy was a mistake,” declared Maurizio Sarri.
