Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea fans didn’t always see eye to eye when the Italian managed Chelsea during his one and only season last year. And after Sarri’s latest comment about Chelsea, fans feelings won’t have changed too much.
???? Maurizio Sarri:
“I had the good fortune to coach Chelsea, a club that has become very important in recent years, but Juventus is different. Here the story is 100 years old, in Chelsea it started about 20 years ago.”#CFC ???? pic.twitter.com/torHkv1w1s

The 60-year-old said: “I had the good fortune to coach Chelsea, a club that has become very important in recent years, but Juventus is different. Here the story is 100 years old, in Chelsea, it started about 20 years ago.”
Fans were understandably angry at Sarri for his latest comment about the club and may have also fueled the fire ahead of a possible reunion with his old employers in the Champions League next season.
Despite the animosity between the two, Sarri enjoyed a successful sole season at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea won the Europa League and finished in the Premier League top-four.
Here is a selection of tweets from Chelsea after the comments made by Sarri regarding the club’s history:

Why would he say something like this? Considering we’re the team that won him his first trophy making him relevant? Ever since he’s joined juve he’s been slagging of chelsea and disrespecting Napoli???? that trophy we got him has gotten to his head. He’s needs to show some respect
