However, information reaching Obcommunication.com indicates that Maurizio Sari has signed a 2-year deal that sees him at Lazio till 2023.
New Lazio coach, Maurizio Sarri
Sarri will be a perfect replacement for Simone Inzaghi, who has moved on to the League winners, Inter to take the place of former Juve and Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte, whose job opportunities appear to be running out.
It is rumoured that Maurizio Sarri is seeking to reunite with his “son” from Chelsea, Ruben Loftus-Cheek who is currently on loan at Fulham.
Sarri had his navel cut in the Bagnoli district of Naples to workers at Italsider, but grew up in Castro (province of Bergamo) and then in Faella (municipality of Castelfranco Piandiscò, in the province of Arezzo).
Sarri has a unique story in the history of the game as one of the few amateur players in Italy who worked as a banker and an amateur footballer as he worked with Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena in Tuscany.
His work as a banker saw him travel Europe, working in London, Zürich and Luxembourg.

Sarri played only at an amateur level, in Figline’s local team, having failed trials with Torino and Fiorentina. At the age of 19, Montevarchi was close to signing Sarri but Figline asked for a compensation of 50 million lire, and the deal eventually collapsed. He later refused a move to Pontedera, and subsequently retired with Figline after struggling with injuries.
