Chelsea have announced the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as their new head coach.

Sarri replaces Antonio Conte, signing a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

The 59-year-old Italian led Napoli to a second-place finish in Serie A last season. Their 91 points were a record for a team finishing as runners-up in the competition.

In 2017, he was named Serie A Coach of the Year.

"I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves," Sarri told the club's official website

Chelsea open their 2018/19 Premier League campaign at Huddersfield Town on Saturday, 11 August.
