The general insinuations that the English Premier League is one of the most difficult leagues in Europe does not apply to Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri if his claim is anything to go by.
The former Napoli coach had made such a claim when asked why he failed to win a trophy in his career at Italy.
Sarri maintained that the Italian league is a more difficult one to compete in, noting that the narrative can be changed in England of his career because the EPL is less difficult.
The Italian’s appointment as Chelsea manager had raised concerns owing to his record but Chelsea owners had made the decision to take the risk going by his football pattern which was known to be one of the finest in Italy.
He noted that only Juventus have won the league in 8 years but it has been rotated amongst clubs in England which gives him a better chance.
Sarri joined Stamford Bridge in the summer after the sack of Antonio Conte who failed to qualify the London club to the Champions League but he went ahead to win the FA Cup last season.
However, Sarri has opened the chances of him winning a trophy with Chelsea and he has his eyes set on the Europa League.
