Maurizio Sarri Gave Juventus Fans The Middle Finger During Time At Napoli

Juventus have just appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager but the 60-year old might just have some apologising to do to the club's fans.

That's because in 2018, when in charge of Napoli, Sarri flipped the bird to Juventus supporters who set about giving his team a 'warm welcome' to the Allianz Stadium.

Ahead of the game, which Napoli won 1-0 courtesy of Kalidou Koulibaly's dramatic last-minute header, thousands gathered to greet the Napoli team bus.

And Sarri, sitting right at the front, could be seen going all Stone Cold Steve Austin when he flipped the board to Juventini as the coach drove past.

Sarri, meanwhile, has left Chelsea after one season to return to Chelsea - with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia revealing the former Hellas Verona coach wanted to be closer to his family.

"Maurizio leaves Chelsea with thanks from us all for the work he and his assistants did during the season he spent as our head coach, and for winning the Europa League, guiding us to another cup final and a third-place finish in the Premier League," a statement on the Chelsea website read.

"We would also like to congratulate him on securing the role as big as any in Serie A and to wish him the best of luck for the future."

Sarri, who tussled with Juventus for the Scudetto in 2017/18, replaces Max Allegri after the six-time Serie A winner decided to step down as manager in Turin.

The ex Empoli has signed a three-year deal, with the two clubs agreeing a £5 million compensation package to allow the managerial switch to take place.
