Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri replaces Antonio Conte as Chelsea head coach

Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri replaces Antonio Conte as Chelsea head coach

Manchester Evening News report that the Cityzens are "furious" with Napoli having believed that the two clubs had a deal regarding the Italian midfielder for £44m.

Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in England in 2016-17 and followed up that achievement with the FA Cup triumph this year, but his relationship with the board became damaged beyond fix, highlighted by his repeated public and private complaints about transfer policy.

But what will excite the fans, even more, is the fact that Sarri has brought with him the highly coveted midfielder, Jorginho, to Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho naturally sounded excited after joining the Premier League giants and was expressive in his first interview.

Moves go against every club at some stage though, and in the case of Jorginho, Manchester City reportedly feel very angry.

"It is not easy to become part of such a big team so I am very, very happy".

A White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said later that "The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much". Trump is not the first American President to get in hot water over comments about Brexit.

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Italian worldwide Jorginho from Napoli for a fee that is believed to be close to £57 million.

Chelsea on Friday said they have parted company with their Italian manager Antonio Conte after two years at Stamford Bridge.

Confirmation of Jorginho's arrival came on Saturday morning, just a couple of hours after it was announced that Sarri would take charge on a three-year deal.

"We are delighted Jorginho has chosen to join Chelsea", club director Marina Granovskaia said in the statement.
