Maurizio Sarri is back in Italy after one season as Chelsea boss.

The former Napoli boss has returned to Serie A, signing with champions Juventus.

He replaces Massimiliano Allegri, who agreed to leave in May after clinching a fifth consecutive Serie A title.

Sarri had not ever managed in Serie A until 2014, when he won promotion with Empoli.

Since then, he enjoyed a successful spell with Napoli and took over at Stamford Bridge last summer.

Sarri’s only season in the London saw him finish third in the Premier League and win the Europa League.

The Italian will now be expected to challenge for the Champions League and lead Juventus to a ninth Scudetto in a row.
