Ex-Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri has officially been unveiled as the new manager of Italian giants, Juventus.
The 60-year-old was unveiled by Director Fabio Paratici on Thursday morning at a press conference in Turin.
Sarri who managed Napoli for three years before leaving for Chelsea addressed his Neapolitan background.
On his choice to join Juve despite them being Napoli’s fierce rivals, he said:
“I had about three years at Napoli, I made a choice out of respect to them to go abroad. With the need to come to Italy, I received an offer from Juventus and that’s it.
”In my life, I have respected everyone and given 110 per cent to every jersey I worked with. I’ll do the same with these colours, I cannot do more than 110 per cent.
”My choices were very logical, there’s no need to write a novel around it.
“Clubs are at the end of the day made up of people. I loved the oneness I saw in the first approach from Juventus, as that is important for me. At the end of the day, you work for a club and what allows you to give another one per cent is the emotional bond with the people.
”I only needed only a couple of meetings with them to realise how determined, strong and with a solid mentality, they were. I like that.”
