Manchester City Boss Pep Guardiola: I Would Love To See This Manager In the Premier League
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed he would love to see a certain Italian manager, currently linked with Chelsea, in the Premier League.
Former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti last week, and is widely expected to be announced as Antonio Conte's replacement at Stamford Bridge should the latter leave in the next month or two.
Former FC Barcelona boss Guardiola, who went head to head with Sarri in the UEFA Champions League in the 2017/18 campaign, was asked what he thought about the possibility of seeing the 59-year-old in the English top flight.
"I would love to see Sarri in the Premier League," the Spaniard told Tuttosport.
"He did well with Empoli and, above all, Napoli. His teams are a real joy to watch. Juventus can also put on a show, with the added security of the club operating behind them."
Under Sarri, Napoli ended twice as runners-ups in Serie A, and made eventual winners Juventus sweat right until the end of the past campaign.
