"I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League - it is an exciting new period in my career", he said. First of all, I hope the fans can enjoy the team. His energy and enthusiasm for football has been infectious and it has been a privilege to have one of the best coaches in the world working in the Premier League to raise the standard of the league and his players at Chelsea.

Moreover, the new boss claimed he could impose his own style of play with just "one or two adjustments" as he gave his first interview in a Chelsea shirt to the club's official App "The 5th Stand".

Chelsea believe they have got in Sarri an astute tactician who produces sides playing exciting football with his three years at Napoli harvesting two second-placed finishes in Serie A.

"I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea", he told the club's website.

"If he creates a team as entertaining to watch as Napoli were under his stewardship then Chelsea's fans are in for a treat", he said on Twitter.

Sarri was forced to apologise again in March this year for responding to a female reporter's question by saying: "You're a woman, you're lovely, for those two reasons I won't tell you to go f*** yourself". I am here for Chelsea. He will certainly be a distinctive character in the era of the "super coach" in the Premier League, with his managerial rivals including Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Juergen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.

Juventus have dominated the Italian league - winning seven titles in a row - but no side has come closer to them in that time than Napoli, who finished four points behind their rivals last season.

His statement issued through the League Managers' Association (LMA) thanked the club for two "unforgettable seasons".

I'm a Chelsea player, but they do not want me there.

Former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri has joined Chelsea on a three-year deal, replacing the outgoing Antonio Conte as head coach.

"To my staff, who always worked so hard, I must say thank you and well done for their professionalism and dedication throughout", concluded Conte.

Sarri's first game at the helm is scheduled to be the July 23 friendly against Perth Glory in Western Australia.
