Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has come out to say he had a confrontational relationship with the Chelsea dressing room during his time in England.
He, however, revealed that the Chelsea players eventually learned to appreciate the kind of manager he was.
According to him, he is not really a kind of coach who pats everyone on the back because he tries as much as possible to highlight the faults of his footballers and speak less about the good things they do.
He added that he does not plan to live in England ever again even he misses the EPL.
His words, “I had a conflicted relationship with the Chelsea dressing room but, when I told them I’d be leaving, many of them cried,”
“I’m not so much a person who pats others on the back. I talk a lot about what they do wrong and less about the good things they do.
“I think that has a big impact, but then they learn to appreciate you for who you are. The longest relationships are with the lads I played least, so I think they recognise something once they absorb your character.”
On living in England, “I would never live there [again], I don’t understand how the Italians who are there do it,”
“As for the football, it’s a different story. I miss the Premier League. It has an extraordinary technical level and an incredible atmosphere.”
