Former Chelsea and Juventus manager, Maurizio Sarri has been named as Lazio’s new head coach, signing a two-year contract with the Serie A side.
After a year away from the game, the Italian coach has returned to oversee the Serie A squad ahead of the 2021-2022 Football Season.
Following the departure of Simone Inzaghi, who was recently appointed by Inter, the 62-year-old Italian professional football manager will take over.
Last season, Lazio finished sixth in the Serie A log and will compete in the Europa League next season.
Sarri began his coaching career in Italy’slower levels in 1990 and eventually rising to Napoli in 2015.
The Bel Paese Legend established himself as one of the top managers in Italian football during his stay at Napoli, winning the Serie A Coach of the Year award in 2016-17.
He also devised a style of play known as “Sarriball,” which is a dynamic attacking style centered on possession.
Sarriball eventually found its way to London when he was named Chelsea manager, succeeding fellow Italian, Antonio Conte.
Last August, he was fired after the team was eliminated from the Champions League round of 16 by Lyon, and he remained out of football before taking on a new task with Lazio.
