Former Chelsea Boss Maurizio Sarri Set To Return To Management In Italy

Maurizio Sarri is set for a return to management with reports in Italy linking the ex-Chelsea boss to Fiorentina and Roma.

Juventus sacked the veteran manager in the summer following his failure to reach the latter rounds of the Champions League with Andrea Pirlo coming in.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Fiorentina are interested in the Italian.

Viola boss Giuseppe Iachini, 56, has faced huge criticism this season and reportedly needs to avoid defeat at Parma on Saturday to save his job.

And the Tuscan club are keen to push up the table after being taken over by Italian-American billionaire Rocco Commisso.

Sarri is named on their shortlist alongside ex-Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti.

Fiorentina may prefer a short-term appointment to see out the season before hiring a big-name candidate.

Roma are also reportedly keen on the 61-year-old Sarri.

Sat eighth in the table, the Giallorossi are said to be unhappy with Paulo Fonseca and a further decline in form may put him at risk.
