    FORMER Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been accused of “betraying” Napoli by taking the Juventus job.

    San Paolo hero Lorenzo Insigne has slammed his former boss’ decision to return to Italy with Napoli’s fiercest rivals.

    Sarri spent three years at Napoli between 2015 and 2018, guiding them to their highest-ever Serie A finish before moving to England with Chelsea.

    The tactician won the Europa League and finished third during his maiden Premier League season.

    Insigne has vowed to do everything in his power to beat Sarri when the two meet in the new campaign.

    He said: “I said it before and I say it again. For us Neapolitans, that was a betrayal. And it will be forever. Now we have to focus on ourselves and try to beat him at all costs.

    “Now that he’s gone to Juve, I don’t want to talk about him anymore.”

    “In other countries I've been told by teammates and coaches that I should not fast.

    “I've seen Muslim women abused for what they wear.Seen guys wearing religious or cultural dress mocked in the street.

    “I never encountered this in Turkey.There are a lot of things I like about Turkey, and I love playing football here.”
