When Maurizio Sarri Couldn't Hide His Delight At Winning A Title

Maurizio Sarri finally won his first trophy as a manager a year ago today when Chelsea beat Arsenal and his reaction to getting his hands on a medal is enough to warm the heart.

29 years and 19 clubs into his managerial career Maurizio Sarri finally won his first trophy after managing Chelsea to their Europa League victory over Arsenal in 2019.

After an astonishing career in Italy, where he started at the bottom of the football pyramid, he finally managed to win some silverware thanks to second half goals from Olivier Giroud, Pedro and two for Eden Hazard against and the look on his face when he received his medal will make you smile:

It was somewhat crazy that the Italian managed to land the job at Chelsea before having won any silverware but such was his impressive work with Napoli.

In Italy he came as close to anyone to beating Juventus to the title in the last eight years, proved by the fact that the Old Lady's margin over the Naples side increased from four points to 11 after the Italian left for England.
