Zielinski: I’ll enjoy beating Sarri

Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski has warned Maurizio Sarri that he will ‘enjoy beating him’ if he decides to replace Max Allegri at Juventus.

The Chelsea boss has been heavily linked with making the move to the Allianz Stadium this summer, despite there being a huge rivalry between the Old Lady and his old team Napoli.

“If Sarri goes to Juve, I’ll enjoy beating him,” Zielinski told sportowefakty.pl.

“If he goes there and calls me to join him, I don’t think I’ll answer him.

Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski has warned Maurizio Sarri that he will ‘enjoy beating him’ if he decides to replace Max Allegri at Juventus.

The Chelsea boss has been heavily linked with making the move to the Allianz Stadium this summer, despite there being a huge rivalry between the Old Lady and his old team Napoli.

“If Sarri goes to Juve, I’ll enjoy beating him,” Zielinski told sportowefakty.pl.

“If he goes there and calls me to join him, I don’t think I’ll answer him.

“Even when he coached us at Napoli, I didn’t answer him when he sent me angry text messages. Anyway, if he joins Juve I’ll enjoy beating him.”

The 25-year-old is currently on international duty with Poland, and he was asked about the differences between Sarri and Carlo Ancelotti.

“Ancelotti asks me to cover more ground, he wants me to get around the pitch more. I wouldn’t say that I played more thanks to him as I also played plenty of games under Sarri.

“I’m happy how the season went, but I know we can do better. I have a good relationship with the Coach. I’ve probably become a more all-round player.

“I owe Ancelotti a lot, this year he has often changed my position on the field and I had to be super fit for the change of role.

“I’m confident we can do well next season. This year I hit the woodwork three times, and on each occasion the goalkeeper was Polish.”

The Partenopei hit the frame of goal 27 times last season, with the Udinese old boy responsible for three of them.

Two came against Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, while Empoli’s Bartlomiej Dragowski was between the sticks for the other.
