"I'm sure he can take his philosophy to Chelsea" - Claudio Ranieri says Sarri is perfect for Blues


Former Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri says Maurizio Sarri can apply his football philosophy in England if he joins Chelsea.

Recent reports have claimed that the 59-year-old will replace Antonio Conte this summer although no agreement has been reached between the two parties.

"Sarri to Chelsea? It depends what Maurizio is like. He'll see little or nothing of the president," Ranieri told Sky Sport Italy.

"He'll have to work hard, and that's not something he lacks.

"Sarri has done well at every level, including Empoli where people said he wasn't ready for big teams.

"Now they know him all over Europe and I'm sure he can take his football and his philosophy anywhere.

"[Ancelotti to Napoli?] I was a bit surprised, I imagined Carlo abroad.

"I have to congratulate De Laurentiis who has pulled off a big coup, because he's brought the most decorated Italian coach, who has won so much abroad, to Napoli."
