Jorginho loving Premier League, but hopes for Serie A return

Jorghinho

Sarri, who has won his first Premier League four games at Chelsea, said he asked for some time to think about his future and was considering staying with the Serie A club.

And he admits English football has taken him by surprise after nearly two decades in the Italian game.

"It's totally different here", Sarri said.

Chelsea and Italy midfielder Jorginho has revealed the difference between English and Italian football. "I know less about the teams I face and the opponents".

"I learned English 31 years ago, when I was in the bank, but then I stopped for 29 years".

Former Napoli boss Sarri has claimed that every player will get the opportunity to showcase their ability, with Europa League and the Carabao Cup starting this month.

"There were various things behind my departure from Napoli", he said.

He went on to say, "I found out of Ancelotti's appointment at Napoli from the Tv while I was at dinner with one of Giuntoli's [Napoli's sporting director] staff members".

He told reporters, according to the newspaper: "It was a gamble and I'm happy to take this step, I want to enjoy it". "Naples is an extraordinary city and they deserve to win the Scudetto. Conte has won (trophies) here and it is hard to take his place".

Napoli fell agonisingly short of the Serie A title during Sarri's final season in charge, finishing four points behind Juventus in 2nd after leading for much of the campaign.

Ancelotti was brought in supposedly to push Napoli one step further and beat Juve to the Scudetto.

"Serie A is still a attractive and exciting league though, one that is followed all over the world".

"More than all the food, even though I'm getting used to the meat and salmon here".

"The Premier League is really nice, it's wonderful".

On Ancelotti, he added: "We exchanged cordial messages of good luck before the start of the season".
