Juventus vs Lokomotiv Prediction: Maurizio Sarri had some anxious moments in Serie A

The new Lazio boss has revealed that he made a sensational mistake by leaving Chelsea.

Italian manager Maurizio Sarri is set to end his one-year hiatus as he will be taking charge at Lazio from next season.

Juventus sacked Sarri in the aftermath of the Champions League exit in the 2019/20 season.

Previously, he had a one-year stint at Premier League giants Chelsea but decided to leave because of his desire to return to Italy.

Now, Dailymail reports, the former Napoli boss has said that he shouldn’t have left Stamford Bridge for Serie A side, in the first place while calling it a sensational mistake.

Sarri said: “At Chelsea, I made a sensational mistake, that of wanting to return to Italy at all costs. Marina stonewalled me to leave Chelsea. I had this desire to return to Italy. Chelsea are a great club, in the following years, they have taken many young people suitable for me.

I experienced a particular year in which Abramovich could not enter England, and we had an owner who was not present in the area. 

A rather difficult situation, all in the hands of Marina and she had a thousand problems to solve, the football aspect was in the hands of the staff, not having the economic power available. Then came Werner, Havertz, Mount, Ziyech: all suited to me and my way of playing.”

Sarri moved to Stamford Bridge after his successful spell at Napoli, and perhaps, he fared well in his only season in England, leading the Blues to the Europa League title.

The 62-year-old changed Chelsea’s style of play, implementing possession-based and high press, in contrast to his predecessors.

However, Sarri’s tenure was still met with criticism from the fans as they did not want him to continue at the club.

The Bianconeri eventually landed Sarri at Turin in a bid to get their hands at the Champions League but to little effect in the end. 

Now, the Italian boss is aiming to take Lazio to new heights after completing a much-anticipated transfer.
