Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed his mum was furious when he took the Juventus job.

Sarri returned to Italy to take over at the Old Lady.

The Italian, whose side face Fiorentina away today, said: “She was not happy at all. My grandmother lived 500 metres from the stadium, so our family were all committed Viola fans, apart from me, as I supported Napoli.

“I have many memories of this stadium, but unfortunately the only one I can see right now is my most recent, as I lost a Scudetto here. I need to swiftly replace that with a positive memory.”
