Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is only the fourth manager in
the Premier League era to win his first five games – and the
second Italian after Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian arrived after a lengthy legal battle with Napoli and
when pre-season training had already begun, but is already
proving why the Stamford Bridge hierarchy were so
determined to sign him.
Sarri took to the Premier League like a duck to water,
ensuring Chelsea have their best start to a Premier League
season since 2010.
He also joined the record books as one of only four Coaches
to win their opening five Premier League games.
Curiously, he is the second Italian after Ancelotti did the
same at Chelsea on his way to the Double in 2009-10.
Pep Guardiola achieved it at Manchester City, while Craig
Shakespeare made the ideal caretaker manager’s
contribution to Leicester City in 2017.
