Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has been opening up about how much he is enjoying his new life in English Football.
The Blues have made an excellent start under their 59-year-old Italian coach, winning all four of their opening Premier League games.
Sarri took over from his fellow countryman Antonio Conte as Chelsea boss earlier this summer, and the former Napoli boss is clearly enjoying his first taste of working outside of Italy.
“I know less about the teams I face and the opponents. So at the beginning to understand it all, was not so simple,” Sarri told Il Mattino.
“But here it is totally different: it is an absolute party, it is a pleasure to arrive in the stadiums and see the fans with different shirts that take a beer together.
“I sign autographs for the fans of the opposing team on the sideline, before and after the match. There are games with so much intensity, physicality. The English one is a different football from the Italian one, played in extraordinary stadiums.”
