According to the mayor of Naples, seeing how the former Partenopei coach is now with their rivals, has disappointed him.
Maurizio Sarri was born in Naples, Italy.
And the manager also managed Napoli from 2015 to 2018, before leaving the Italian Lega Serie A for English Premier League side Chelsea.
And after only one season in England, he’s returning to Italy, to coach the Partenopei’s rivals: Juventus.
Which is why the mayor of the city of Naples, Luigi de Magistris, has explained how he feels seeing Sarri in Juventus, and what it would mean for the local club to beat them next season.
“Ancelotti makes us dream because to beat Sarri’s Juve would be a football orgasm,” he was quoted by Calcio Mercato.
“I can not hide the disappointment; disappointment and bitterness – I understand that he is a professional but I also understand that in life you can choose, in politics as in football, and I can’t forget Sarri’s phrases about the ‘Palace’ and more.”
“At 51, I continue to be a romantic and I think that in these professions; institutions, politics and even football, which are overwhelmed by finance, business, and scandals, there must be room for the romantics,” he added.
“Despite this, the movement born around Sarri has been one of the most beautiful things in recent years.”
