Chelsea send heartfelt message to Maurizio Sarri after he’s been diagnosed with pneumonia

Chelsea Football Club sent their best wishes to Maurizio Sarri after Juventus confirmed the Italian was being treated for pneumonia.

Sarri missed Juventus’ clash with Triestina last weekend because he was feeling unwell and it was thought that the 60-year-old had the flu.

However, Sarri was sent for tests after failing to recover and Juventus have since confirmed that he’s been diagnosed with pneumonia. It’s unclear if Sarri will be back in charge for Juventus’ opening weekend clash with Parma and the Serie A giants have said he will assessed on a day-by-day basis.

The Italian, of course, spent just a single year at Stamford Bridge before returning to Serie A and the Blues have sent a class message to their former boss.

‘All of us at Chelsea send our best wishes to Maurizio Sarri, who is being treated for pneumonia. Get well soon, Maurizio.’ a tweet from Chelsea read.

Sarri finished third with Chelsea in the Premier League and guided them to the final of the Capital One Cup, which they lost on penalties to Manchester City.

However, his crowning glory came with a 4-1 victory against Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku in May.
