Maurizio Sarri is happy about is first few months in England as a Premier League manager.

The Italian boss, in an interview with Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport revealed what he likes most about English football: “Eighteen games unbeaten, in a competitive reality like ours, shows we’re on the right track. I’m even happier because we’re playing a lot of games and it’s harder to make headway like this”. Sarri explained. “It’s very tight and playing so much takes away some of the work we do in training, but I always knew that would be the case. Right now I’m trying to find middle ground between training and competitions. What won me over and what would I like to improve? The thing that wins you over immediately is the high level of football at fantastic stadiums. There’s an infinite amount of passion and, from what I have seen so far, it’s expressed in the right way”.

Chelsea‘s manager then also underlined an aspect which, according to him, needs to be improved: “The aspect that needs improving is timing. The limited time to train doesn’t help Coaches or players. We mustn’t only think about the physical component but also the mental one.” Sarri said.
