Serie A giants Lazio have delighted fans with the method they chose to announce Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.
The former Chelsea boss has been out of work since leaving Juventus at the end of last season, despite leading The Old Lady to a ninth straight Scudetto.
Sarri had been linked with the vacant Tottenham job and it was believed he would hold out for a clear title contender for his next club as boss.
