Maurizio Sarri is the current manager of Italian side Juventus FC.

Previously he was the Chelsea head coach for a season in the Premier League where he won his first honour as a manager, the UEFA Europa League. He moved to Stamford Bridge following a successful three-year spell at Serie A side Napoli.

In his three years at the helm, Napoli recorded two second-place finishes in their domestic league, including last season when they achieved a record points total for a runner-up, and one third place. In 2017, he won the Serie A Coach of the Year award.

Born in Bagnoli, a working-class area of Naples, Sarri began his coaching career in a part-time capacity while working in the banking industry following a short spell as an amateur player.

In 2000, he accepted a role with AC Sansovino in the sixth tier of Italian football. Further jobs around the Italian lower leagues followed before Sarri joined Serie B side Pescara. From there, he moved to Arezzo. In 2011, he took charge of Sorrento, followed by  a return to Serie B a year later, this time with Empoli.
