"I was lucky to transport my idea of football onto the pitch, with the quality of these players", he said in quotes carried by the Daily Mail.

Man City are not particularly happy about the manner in which Chelsea stole in to snatch Jorginho from Napoli right beneath their noses.

Sarri sees possibilities, but with Chelsea playing catch up, City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool strengthening and Arsenal under new management, the challenge is greater now.

Sarri's comments came as Conte, 48, issued a statement through England's League Managers' Association.

"I think Chelsea is a good team", said former Napoli boss Sarri.

Conte was axed 55 days after winning the FA Cup in his final match and despite overseeing pre-season training earlier last week.

The "Blues", who won the Premier League in the 2016/17 season in Antonio Conte's first term in charge, finished outside of the top-four the following season, ultimately leading to Conte's dismissal on Friday.

The Italy global will wear No 5 at Chelsea and fans will have their first chance to see him in action when they play Perth Glory in a friendly in Australia on July 23.

"The deal that could bring the Pipita to Stamford Bridge begins to take shape".

Having arrived from Naples he quickly made his first signing with Jorginho coming in andhis first game will be next week with a friendly against Perth Glory.

"I have enjoyed my time in England and London so much and I want to thank the Chelsea fans who have been awesome to me and my family".

In a club statement, he added that he hopes "we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season".

Chelsea have formally announced the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as their new manager after weeks of speculation, with the Italian now facing the task of whipping his squad into shape before the Premier League kicks off in a month's time.

LMA chief executive Richard Bevan anticipates Conte will be sought after following his stint at Stamford Bridge.
