Juventus Include 'Bizarre' Clause In Maurizio Sarri's Contract And He’s Not Happy About It

New Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is annoyed at a strange clause that the club have inserted into his contract.

The ex-Chelsea and Napoli manager, 60, agreed to a three-year deal to succeed Massimiliano Allegri at the Old Lady.


But the Serie A champions have already frustrated their head coach with a clause that requires him to wear a Juventus suit.

The Italian was known for his quirky superstitions at the Blues and loved to wear his tracksuit on the touchline at Stamford Bridge.

And Sarri made it clear at his press conference he would challenge the club over their demand for him to wear formal attire.

"I prefer not to wear a Juventus suit on the pitch," he said.

"Off the pitch, when I represent Juventus, I am obliged to wear it and it is written in my contract.

"But on the pitch, I would prefer not to, but we will discuss it.

"The important thing, at my age, is they don't ask me to go naked."

While Sarri will fight his corner over the suit, he admitted that he was happy to return to Italy and take on the challenge awaiting him at Juventus.

"I gave everything to Napoli. Then I had a doubt and my feeling was my journey there was over," he explained.

"I received proposals from other clubs and decided to go abroad and not pass from one Italian club to another.

"I had a wonderful experience in the Premier League, but then I felt a professional and personal need to come back to Italy.

"Juventus are the best Italian club at the moment; they offered me the opportunity to return to Italy.

"It is the crowning achievement of a long career, that for 80 per cent of it was extremely tough."

The Juventus boss left Chelsea after one season in charge, but he did capture his first piece of major silverware with their Europa League triumph.

Will Sarri be a hit at Juventus?

Let us know in the comments.
