Ex-Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri replaces Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager

Chelsea football club have appointed former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri as new manager to replace Antonio Conte who was sacked on Friday.
Maurizio Sarri, 59, told BBC he wants to bring “entertaining football” to Chelsea after becoming their manager on a three-year deal.
Sarri led Napoli to two second-place finishes in his three seasons in charge of the Serie A side, who named Carlo Ancelotti as his successor in May.
He is the 13th managerial appointment by Blues owner Roman Abramovich since his takeover of the club in 2003, including Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink on two occasions.
Sarri’s appointment had been widely expected, with Chelsea agreeing compensation to bring him to Stamford Bridge because he had two years left on his Napoli deal and had remained on the Italian club’s payroll after Ancelotti’s arrival.
Chelsea have also signed Italy international Jorginho from Napoli after Manchester City pulled out of a £50m deal.
Jorginho, 26, has signed a five-year contract to join former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.
Brazil-born Jorginho had been at Napoli since 2014 and scored four goals in 36 appearances for the side last season as they finished second in Serie A.
