Sarri reveals the reasons behind his departure from Napoli

He is, however, determined to succeed at Chelsea for now, with the Premier League presenting him with an entirely different challenge to that he had grown accustomed to in Serie A. There were motives for me to stay there, but also a few doubts.

Maurizio Sarri has claimed that he only found out he was leaving Napoli when he saw his successor Carlo Ancelotti paraded on club chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis' TV channel.

The 23-year-old shot-stopper has made a solid start as the club's new number one, securing two clean sheets in the opening four games of the season as Chelsea have won all their fixtures so far.

"Now I am at Chelsea and I'm happy about it".

Sarri said he could quite easily have remained at Napoli after taking them the closest they have been to winning the Scudetto since 1990. "It's an absolute festival and a pleasure to arrive in the stadiums and see all the fans wearing different shirts but drinking beers together".

Sarri, meanwhile, has yet to win a trophy as a manager and when asked whether his shoes or Conte's were harder to fill, he replied: "I won nothing with Napoli".

"I sign autographs for the fans of the opposing team on the sidelines, before and after the match".

"The contract that the president wanted included a release clause that expired on May 31, yet on May 21, they already signed a contract with Ancelotti".

"There are games with so much intensity, physicality".

It is the first time that Sarri, who started out as a banker, has coached outside Italy.

Cahill will be desperate to prove his case as Chelsea begin their Europa League campaign against PAOK on September 20 before facing Liverpool away five days later in the Carabao Cup.

Maurizio Sarri's footballing style with Chelsea has not been very attractive yet but it certainly has been very functional.
