Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has been left unhappy after Napoli were knocked out of the Europa League at the quarterfinal stage on Thursday night after their aggregate defeat at the hands of Premier League club Arsenal.
Sarri talked about Napoli during his post-match press conference after his Blues team saw off Czech Republic side Slavia Prague in their Europa League quarterfinal duel on Thursday night.
Maurizio Sarri has close ties with Italian Serie A giants Napoli after spending three years at the club before joining Chelsea last summer.
The Italian tactician enjoyed a good measure of success while he was at Napoli and it was his work there that earned him a big move to Chelsea.
Sarri has not had the best of times at Chelsea but he has been able to lead them to the semifinals of the Europa League at the expense of Slavia Prague.
Chelsea survived a little scare before they saw off the Czech side 4-3 at home and a 5-3 aggregate victory over the less fancied Slavia Prague.
Sarri’s former team Napoli were second best against Arsenal over the two legs and the Gunners will play in the semifinals of the competition after a 3-0 aggregate win over the Italian Serie A giants.
