Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he has encountered preparation issues ahead of the start of the new season. Long story short – there hasn’t been any.
Despite Sarri becoming Chelsea manager being the worst kept secret in the football world, the Italian was not preparing for life at Stamford Bridge.
He revealed this during his first press conference as Chelsea manager. The news will no doubt come as a concern to many Chelsea fans.
Sarri says he didn’t prepare for the Chelsea job over the last month because he was distracted by resolving his Napoli situation #cfc

The new campaign kicks off with our Community Shield clash with Manchester City in around three weeks time.
Sarri has until then to get his side into shape and ready to compete with the reigning Premier League champions.
He is one of the best, and most innovative, managers on the planet. However, he’s not a miracle worker, it’s a race against time to get his squad ready.
We have faith in Sarri to do what needs to be done in the coming weeks. He doesn’t have a choice.
