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.
“You need clear ideas on your journey. I supported Napoli because I was born in Naples and I got the idea we could be competitive at a national level, so I gave my all.
”In the last few months at Napoli, I had doubts between my affection for the club and fans, and my professional feeling the journey there had concluded.
”During my doubts, Carlo Ancelotti was introduced and that was probably my fault, as it was my doubt. I received offers, but preferred to go abroad, as I did not want to move directly to another Italian club.
”The Premier League was a great experience, but in the latter half, I felt professional and personal needs to return to Italy.”
