“I had a conflicted relationship with the Chelsea dressing room”

Juventus Manager Maurizio Sarri says he had a difficult relationship with Chelsea players during his reign in the 2018/2019 season but he ultimately won their trust towards the end of the campaign.

Sarri delivered a third place PL finish and an Europe league win during his sole year in England.

“I had a conflicted relationship with the Chelsea dressing room but, when I told them I’d be leaving, many of them cried,” he told Juve's official YouTube channel .

“I’m not so much a person who pats others on the back. I talk a lot about what they do wrong and less about the good things they do.

“I think that has a big impact, but then they learn to appreciate you for who you are. The longest relationships are with the lads I played least, so I think they recognise something once they absorb your character.”
