Chelsea tactician Maurizio Sarri has revealed preparation approach he deploys in games. The Chelsea boss during the earlier stages of his managerial career was in the Italian Seria C but continuous commitment and hardwork saw him climb to the Seria A before finally arriving England.

Sarri has enjoyed a positive spell since his arrival at the Bridge, but not without a certain level of commitment. The Italian reveals that he commits 10hrs every day to work on his tactical approach in a bid to modify them for the game ahead. He also watch football for two hours on a daily basis

“My working day usually lasts from 9am to 7pm, then two hours of viewing time for myself,” Maurizio Sarri said to Corriere dello Sport (transcript London Evening Standard), “It’s like a religion.

“I got a house… in Effingham, so they lock me up in my hermitic seal and if they knock, I don’t answer the door. I am immersed in my world.

“I achieved this almost at the age of 60. I don’t need to thank anyone other than those who cared for me, supported me and understood me, but not those who tried to exploit me.

“I spent my time in Serie C, that’s a league that grinds you down and spits you out.”
