Napoli chief De Laurentiis slams Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri again

New attack on Sarri

Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis has launched a new attack on Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after he left the club for the Premier League over the summer.

Sarri chose to leave the Italian side when Chelsea came calling following the sacking of Antonio Conte.

Napoli then replaced him with Carlo Ancelotti but De Laurentiis attacked Sarri on his move to Chelsea not long after.

He claimed in August that while there was positives from the way the side played under Sarri, there was “also the bitterness of having won nothing,”

He then claimed that “We [Napoli] gave him everything and we won nothing in three years.”

‘What if he was using me as a bank?'”

Now, De Laurentiis has been speaking about Sarri again.

He has suggested that while he initially thought the Italian could be something special at Napoli, it eventually became about the money.

“Sarri? I thought I had met a coach who would stay at Napoli for a long time,” De Laurentiis explained to Corriere dello Sport.

“At a certain point it became a question linked exclusively to money.

“Suddenly, it was established by the media that his contract must be adjusted. So what is the value of an agreement just signed? We had already gone from €700,000 to €1.5million.

“I also once heard him say that for his next contract, he wanted to get rich.

“Sarri’s declarations of love for the city? I believed it, but then I wondered: ‘What if he was using me as a bank?'”

Alvaro Morata: Eden Hazard would accept Real Madrid move

It’s been a great start to life at Chelsea for Maurizio Sarri.

His side are impressing particularly in the Premier League and are up there with a chance at winning the league this season.

Though, Sarri does have a problem and it comes in the form of Eden Hazard’s future.

That is because Alvaro Morata has suggested the Belgian would accept a move to Real Madrid if they approached.
