Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri during a Premier League game against Bournemouth.
Maurizio Sarri must be thrilled that his footballing philosophy is now part of the Italian language.

Maurizio Sarri might still be waiting for the first trophy of his coaching career but the Chelsea head coach's impact on the football world stretches far beyond mere silverware.

"Sarrismo," the term his followers coined to describe the distinctive style of attacking, possession-based football he refined during three spectacular seasons in charge of Napoli, has made it into Italy's Treccani Encyclopaedia.

Describing the honour as Sarri's first trophy of the season, the official Twitter account...

Italy's got talent: Roberto Mancini needs to trust in youth to progress

Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes face-off ahead of the first-ever round of UEFA Nations League qualifiers.
All you need to know about the UEFA Nations League.

One of the novelties of the new Roberto Mancini era at Coverciano is the music blaring out during Italy training.

Queen, Miley Cyrus, The Rolling Stones, and The Killers have all been on the playlist, while the players warmed up to Robbie Williams' "Love my Life" earlier this week. Whether this particular track had been chosen for the subliminal message it has the potential to deliver remains a mystery, but Mancini's desire to create a feel-good vibe should bring is understandable after how miserable...

Mattia Perin out to prove worthy heir to Gianluigi Buffon for Juventus and Italy

Stewart Robson reveals his projected Juventus XI as Cristiano Ronaldo gets set to make his Serie A debut against Chievo.

The journey has been longer than predicted, but the real adventure for Mattia Perin is about to start. More than seven years after making his Serie A debut, Perin finally has an opportunity to become the true heir to one of the league's greatest, in Gianluigi Buffon. Signed by Juventus from Genoa for €12 million in the summer, the 25-year-old has a chance to live up to the "next Buffon" hype for club and country which has followed him his entire life.

Perin's talent was easy to spot early...

Germany join list of World Cup holders who imploded at next tournament

Germany have become the fourth defending champions in the last five World Cups to exit in the first round, when prior to this stretch such a fall from grace had not occurred since 1966. So what happened to the others, and is there a common theme?

France, 2002

Having ridden the wave of multicultural goodwill to a home victory in 1998, this was arguably the most dramatic fall, France crashing out without scoring a goal in Japan and South Korea. It began with that infamous defeat to Senegal, followed...

From Baba Yaga to Rasputin: A to Z of Calcutta's Soviet Union connection

Moscow Olympics memorabilia from the author's collection.
Moscow Olympics memorabilia from the author's collection.

For anyone growing up in Calcutta in the 1970s and 80s, the Soviet Union was omnipresent. Communist red was the colour of the day, Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin adorned the walls and Gorky, Tolstoy and Pushkin the bookshelves. As he prepares for his trip to Russia, Jayaditya Gupta unlocks a suitcase of memories and associations.


My first encounter with Cyrillic, thanks to the large sign on Kolkata's Lower Circular Road. Pan Am, TWA, British Airways, KLM had the glam quotient but "Aepopvot"...

Zinedine Zidane's career ended in shame with a sending off in the 2006 World Cup final.

In this special 10-part series, ESPN's Jayaditya Gupta, who has attended every World Cup since 2002, recalls his favourite matches from the tournament. At No. 3 is the 2006 final, in which Italy beat France 5-4 on penalties after the game ended 1-1 in regulation time.

The memory

It's a strange one, because what I remember most is not what I saw but what I didn't see. And, of course, the moments - minutes, hours, days even - after. I was sitting in the stands towards the end Italy were attacking;...
