Jorginho joins Sarri at Chelsea

Jorginho joins Sarri at Chelsea

He was succeeded in May by Carlo Ancelotti - himself a former Chelsea manager.

The Italian has signed a three-year deal with the Stamford Bridge side and will replace Antonio Conte, who was sacked on Friday.

The 59-year-old was known for playing attacking football at Napoli, and he immediately expressed his desire to try and replicate that at Stamford Bridge in the coming season.

Maurizio Sarri flew to London yesterday to complete negotiations over his move to Chelsea after the club confirmed the departure of Antonio Conte nearly a day after he was dismissed.

The 27-year-old started all three games for Senegal at the World Cup with the African nation only exiting the tournament on fair play rules behind Japan, and attention for him could now turn to his club future.

"I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea", Jorginho said.

Less touted, however, was an "improved third-generation keyboard" which only promises to offer a quieter typing experience. That fix program doesn't cover the new models, which is another sign that Apple is confident about the tweaked design.

Conte is now chasing his £9m pay-out for being dismissed before the end of his contract, while Sarri gets to work on pre-season.

Granovskaia said: "We are delighted to welcome Maurizio and are looking forward to him bringing his football philosophy to Chelsea".

Exciting times indeed for Chelsea fans.

The Premier League champions recently signed Riyad Mahrez for a club record £60m fee, and the winger won't be a guaranteed starter by any means.

Italy midfielder Jorginho has become Chelsea's first signing since Maurizio Sarri was hired as manager of the Premier League club.

Jorginho has posted a cryptic message on his Instagram story, just a day after becoming a Chelsea player.
