Mourinho tips Sarri for success

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has tipped Maurizio Sarri to be a success at Chelsea. “He has the conditions to do good work.”

Sarri and Mourinho will lock horns for the first time as Coaches in the Premier League this season, and the former Inter boss believes the ex-Napoli tactician will suit his old club’s ‘fantastic’ squad. 

“I don’t know him,” he told beIN Sports.

“When I was in Italy from 2008-10, he was not in Serie A. I never met him or played against him. I just follow football and lately the good work he did with Napoli.

“In England, all the good managers have the desire to come. It’s a crazy competition with a high level so I think every manager has the dream to come so he had the chance to come.

“He has a fantastic team, fantastic players and squad - I think he has conditions to do good work.”
