Maurizio Sarri says he found out about his Napoli sacking on TV

"I know less about the teams I'm facing and the opponents, and at the start it wasn't that easy to understand the language!

Conte here has won (the Premier League) and it is hard to take his place", said Sarri.

"We turned on the television right in the second when Ancelotti was walking in Filmauro [president Aurelio De Laurentiis" film studio].

Sarri's Chelsea have won all four of their Premier League matches so far this season, with the boss cutting a notable figure on the Stamford Bridge touchline.

Meanwhile, Sarri's side take on Cardiff at home in the Premier League next Saturday, September 15, looking to maintain their flawless start.

Sarri nevertheless thanked De Laurentiis for "giving me the chance to coach the club that belongs in my heart", and one he hopes will be successful under his successor.

"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 drinking a beer together".

"Now I am at Chelsea and I'm happy about it".

"I still don't know why I was sacked, you'd have to ask the club", Sarri said.

"The president pretended to sign a contract with a buy-out clause expiring on May 31, but they signed Ancelotti on May 21".

"There are games with so much intensity, physicality. But that back four, I don't think they can win the league with that back four".

Since new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri took over the Blues, the 32-year-old Cahill has not played a single minute under the Italian football coach.

Due to issues surrounding his contract at Napoli as well as the time it took for Chelsea to dismiss Antonio Conte, Sarri wasn't unveiled at Stamford Bridge until a few weeks before the season started.

"I haven't really been following the Italian league in the first rounds, I saw a little bit of Napoli, Milan, Inter, and Juventus".
