Maurizio Sarri Expresses Displeasure At Napoli Chant, Raises Middle Finger At Fan

Maurizio Sarri, the former Chelsea manager now leading Serie A side Lazio since 2021, expressed his displeasure at a fan who shouted “Forza Napoli.” Sarri had previously coached Napoli for three years, from 2015 to 2018.

However, his reaction to the chant was swift and not in good spirits, as he raised his middle finger at the fan. The incident quickly made the rounds on social media, with some users reacting with amusement and surprise.

Lazio, under Sarri’s management, has had a challenging start to the season, facing consecutive losses against Lecce and Genoa.

Nevertheless, they had an impressive 2022–23 Serie A campaign, finishing second, with Napoli claiming the championship.

In the Champions League, Lazio finds themselves in a competitive group with Feyenoord, Atletico Madrid, and Celtic.

Sarri’s coaching journey includes a single year in England with Chelsea, during which he won the Europa League in his final game in charge.

Chelsea also secured a third-place finish in the Premier League but lost the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City, a match remembered for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to be substituted.

Following his departure from Chelsea in 2019, Sarri took the reins at Juventus, guiding them to the Serie A title in his inaugural season.

Subsequently, he assumed the role at Lazio in 2021, where he achieved both fifth and second-place finishes in Serie A.
