Italy legend Paolo Maldini believes Maurizio Sarri will be successful at Chelsea if he is given time.
“I hope he is able to share with them some of the knowledge he brought to Serie A, where with Empoli and Napoli he did great work in the last few years,” Maldini told JOE.
“If he gets the time, if the players understand and accept his ways – you have to think about the language barrier and different demands, a different way of training – then I feel he will be very successful.
“In England, it is the toughest league to come in, especially if you are a manager. It is like a different world with football.
“Sarri is good tactically, with football that you want to watch, but he also has strong discipline so I’d be very, very happy to see him make a big difference in the Premier League.”
