On Friday, Chelsea confirmed the sacking of their boss Antonio Conte after a spell of two years at Stamford Bridge.
Barely 12 hours later, it emerged that former Napoli gaffer Maurizio Sarri had agreed to become the new manager for the West London Club on a three-year deal.
According to Sky Sports in Italy, “Maurizio Sarri has signed a contract to become Chelsea head coach, with Gianfranco Zola as his assistant.”
“The former Napoli coach signed the deal to take over from Antonio Conte following a two-and-a-half hour meeting with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia at Stamford Bridge on Friday night,” Sky Sports further noted.
The 59-year-old has never won any major title.
