I am proud to be the coach of the national team of my country and only a role as attractive as manager of Chelsea could follow that. “I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the club and the day-to-day challenge of competing in the Premier League. “‘Chelsea and English football are watched wherever you go, the fans are passionate and my ambition is to have more success to follow the victories I enjoyed in Italy. “I am happy we have made the announcement now so everything is clear and we can end the speculation.
