De Laurentiis still bitter over Sarri departure
Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has hit out at Maurizio Sarri, after he left Chelsea to join Juventus as Massimiliano Allegri’s replacement.
The Italian joined Chelsea last season from Napoli, having impressed in Naples.
At the time, De Laurentiis was pretty bitter about the move.
Speaking back in August, the Napoli chief explained: “From last season there remains the pleasure of playing so well but also the bitterness of having won nothing.
“We gave him everything and we won nothing in three years.”
While there was much expected of Sarri, he was unable to get Chelsea playing the way that he wanted and there were suggestions he would be sacked.
However, after he clinched the Europa League title, Juventus moved to sign Sarri as Massimiliano Allegri’s replacement.
Now, Sarri’s former boss and Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has commented on the Italian’s move to Juventus.
‘He didn’t win anything here and maybe he will not win anything in Turin’
Speaking after Sarri’s move was confirmed on Sunday, De Laurentiis suggested that football is ‘no longer a world of icons and loyalty’.
He then claimed that having not won anything during his time at Napoli, Sarri may not win anything in Turin, either.
‘I am not surprised about Sarri’s move to Juve, football is no longer a world of icons and loyalty,’ De Laurentiis explained, as quoted by the Mail.
‘He didn’t win anything here and maybe he will not win anything in Turin.’
