Maurizio Sarri sorry for ‘Sexist’ and ‘Homophobic’ Comments


Maurizio Sarri apologised for his Sexist and homophobic comments made in the past with his former club Napoli in his first press conference with Chelsea.

Sarri was subject to a lot of criticism earlier this year for taking exception to a female reporter’s question at a post-match press conference and replying:

“You’re a woman, you’re pretty, for those two reasons I won’t tell you to piss off.”

But the Italian assured that he is not proud of what happened in the past and vowed to prove that he is a good individual.

¬†“I think those who know me well cannot define me in this way; homophobic and sexist. Absolutely not,” Sarri said in his first press conference with Chelsea.

“I am an extremely open person, I do not have these kind of problems, I hope I will show this when I am working here and living here.”

“These mistakes were made, yes, but when someone makes a mistake they must apologise and accept some allegations can be made by the press.”

“Professional and ethical attitude is very important. More than apologies, I hope you will have the chance to get to know better and forget about this very quickly.”
