Maurizio Sarri has been very excited about his new job at Turin as the successor to Massimiliano Allegri and wants to help the club superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to “break some new records”.
The former Chelsea boss left Stamford Bridge last week to return to Italy. Although having managed Napoli previously, Sarri believes working with the Serie A champions and Ronaldo will be a step ahread of his managerial career.
He spoke to the reporters about why he left the Premier league for Juventus.
“At Chelsea I coached some very strong players, but training Cristiano will be yet another step forward. I’d like to help him break some new records.”
“The Premier League was a great experience, but in the latter half (of the season), I felt professional and personal needs to return to Italy.”
“I feel that I have respected everyone and I gave my all.”
Sarri also explained why he chose the Old Lady over going back to Naples.
“Juve are the best Italian club right now and offered me a chance to return to Italy. It’s the crowning achievement of a long career, that for 80 per cent of it was extremely tough.”
“I have never seen so much determination on the part of a club to hire a coach. They had a great attitude which convinced me, they were very strong feelings.”
