Maurizio Sarri was announced as the new manager of Juventus on Sunday after Massimiliano Allegri left the club at the end of the 2018-19 season. Spending more than 20 years in Italy and guiding Napoli to a record points total in Serie A in the 2017-18 season, Sarri returns home with a new challenge just after winning his first ever managerial trophy, the UEFA Europa League with Chelsea. The London club secured a thumping 4-1 win against their local rivals Arsenal in the summit clash in Baku last month

He also led Chelsea to a third-place finish in the Premier League. The Europa League triumph may come as a commendable feat on papers but Sarri didn’t enjoy a smooth campaign during his reign at the London club as players failed to fully adapt to his so-called “Sarri-ball” system.

It is reported Juventus agreed on a compensation fee with Chelsea in excess of 5 million pounds ($6.30 million) for Sarri, who joins the Italian giants on a three-year contract.
