The coach had two initial concerns about joining the Biancocelesti – his salary and the overall project.

He expected a higher wage due to his previous employment and success and Chelsea and Juventus, and since he would not be managing a side in the UEFA Champions League, he needed to be convinced of the club’s goals and objectives.

However, that has all been solved after speaking with Sporting Director Igli Tare and President Claudio Lotito; all that remains is to sort out the contracts with his staff, which Sarri has requested to be completed within the next 24-36 hours.


As a result, Tare will have a call with his agent, Fali Ramadani, today to try and reach a total agreement – it has been confirmed that Sarri’s assistant will be Giovanni Martusciello, who has previously worked with the 62-year-old at Empoli and Juventus.
