Maurizio Sarri reveals the biggest Chelsea mistake he made

Maurizio Sarri admits he made a ‘huge mistake’ by forcing his Chelsea exit.

The Italian guided the club to success in the Europa League in his single season at Stamford Bridge.

But Sarri’s style of play was widely criticised by Chelsea fans and the 62-year-old ended up leaving after just one year at the club.

And Sarri has revealed that Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia was desperate to keep him at the club, despite his desire to return to Italy.

‘At Chelsea I made a huge mistake and that was wanting to return to Italy at all costs.

‘Marina tried stopping me from leaving Chelsea, I had this desire to return to Italy.

‘Marina tried stopping me from leaving Chelsea, I had this desire to return to Italy.

‘Chelsea are a great club, in the following years [after I left] they have signed many young players suitable for me.

‘I lived a particular year, in which Abramovich could not enter England and we had an owner not present in the stadium.

‘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 staff, not having the economic power available.

‘Then came Werner, Havertz, Mount, Ziyech – all suited to me and my way of playing.’
