After teasing the news with a cryptic tweet, Lazio on Wednesday announced they have hired former Chelsea and Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri.

“Maurizio Sarri is the new coach,” posted the Serie A club on social media.

Earlier Lazio sent out a tweet showing a hand holding a lit cigarette, track suit tops and a simple drawing of a bank.

Sarri, the former Napoli, Chelsea and Juventus coach, worked as a banker and is a notorious chain smoker who wears a track suit on the sideline.

Italian media reported that the two sides agreed to a two-year deal earlier in the week.
