Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has since moved on but he claims to have had a hand in his former side’s triumph over Liverpool at the Champions League encounter within the week.

Napoli had to wait until the dying minute to confirm their victory over the Jurgen Klopp side and it was the most painful one to experience.

Sarri who was speaking to journalists said he had a hand in Liverpool’s fall and had perfected it days before.

The Italian side at played out a 1-1 draw against the Reds at the weekend. Sarri’s side stressed out Liverpool in the encounter and that affected their Champions League game because they were tired.

Sarri said playing at Naples can be very tiring because of the crowd, claiming that Liverpool were only exhausted at that point in time before conceding a goal.

The Reds were earlier given the chance to take the day despite going away but had a disappointing game.

The German boss had taken the blame for the defeat but was surprised his side could not create chances by not playing a single shot on target.

He, however, said he will keep working to ensure he works more on the lapses of the game.

None stopping Hazard’s golden boot challenge but what does Warnock think about Chelsea this season?

Read Deal!!! Why Sarri was snubbed by star player in the past

Nicolo Barella

It has been revealed that West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was left disappointed after Cagliari star midfielder Nicolo Barella turned down the opportunity to join the Stamford Bridge in the last January winter transfer window.

Nicolo Barella was reportedly available for a move to the Stamford Bridge with the Italian Serie A side willing to let him leave but the move was blocked by the player on claims that he wants to remain in the country because of his family.

It was expected that Nicolo Barella joins the club as a replacement for France international Cesc Fabregas who left the club to join French Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.

However, manager Maurizio Sarri could still be interested in a move for Nicolo Barella but they will again be stopped by the transfer ban on the team after falling short of FIFA rules.

It is also unclear if Nicolo Barella is still willing to leave Italy as he could still hold the excuse of wanting to be with his family.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have got France international N’Golo Kante, Jorginho at the midfield while there are possibilities of adding up Mateo Kovacic who is on loan from Spanish La Liga side Real Madrid.

It has been suggested that there is a possibility of manager Maurizio Sarri moving away from the West London outfit Chelsea to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus ahead of the coming season.

There are speculations that the Italian boss could be sacked by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich as he is not convinced about his ability to deliver success while his relationship with the fans remains a major concern.

It is therefore claimed that Roman Abramovich will wait for the outcome of the Europa League finals before making a decision on the future of the former Napoli boss.

However, Maurizio Sarri has already been linked with a return to Italy as he is reportedly wanted by a number of clubs in the Serie A including AS Roma and Juventus.

Serie A champions Juventus’ manager Allegri has already declared his decision to leave the club and manager Maurizio is being linked with a switch which he has dismissed but there are feelers that the move could still happen if he lose his job with the Blues team.

It is therefore claimed that Maurizio Sarri has met with the criteria needed at the Old Lady and is tipped to succeed if handed the job but that will not happen should Chelsea decide to keep him for the coming season.

Although the performance of the Blues team was not convincing in the concluding season the Italian boss has managed to help the Blues team return to Champions League with a top-four finish.

Chelsea to pay £32 for this player who is not affected by ban

The West London outfit Chelsea have been handed a transfer ban that will stop them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows.

The Blues team went against the FIFA rule on signing foreign minors and that has attracted the ban.

This, therefore, means the West London outfit will not be able to register any new player as such, having new faces in the coming season aside American star Christian Pulisic whose deal has already been completed before the ban was placed.

However, Chelsea have got one Real Madrid player, Mateo Kovacic who could be available for them despite the transfer ban to bring in before the start of the season.

Mateo Kovacic registered as a loan player after spending some time at the Stamford Bridge and that is the only saving grace the Blues have got because they have an option of a permanent deal which is now being considered for activation.

However, in very clear terms, a permanent deal for Kovacic will not be affected by the FIFA ban that prevents Chelsea from signing players for the next two transfer windows.

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic’s performance within his one-year loan spell at the Stamford Bridge remains an impressive one after playing 32 times in the Premier League.

Petr Cech

The West London outfit Chelsea have suffered a major blow in their bid to land Arsenal legendary goalkeeper Petr Cech as their sporting director ahead of the coming season.

Petr Cech has already announced his decision to quit active football at the end of the season with his next step yet to be known but will not happen until after he has played his last Arsenal game, the Europa League finals, against Chelsea later on Thursday.

It was earlier reported that the stopper has got an offer from Chelsea and Arsenal to take charge of the youth team but a report yesterday claims that the West London outfit are offering Petr Cech a sporting director role to have him return back to the Stamford Bridge.

However, the legendary stopper, who is one of the best the English Premier League has ever had refuted the claim that he would be joining Chelsea as their new reporting director.

According to him, no decision has been made, stressing that it would only happen after he has played his last Arsenal game.

Howbeit, Petr Cech seeks to leave the stage while the ovation is very high by lifting the Europa League title with the North London outfit Arsenal later on Thursday.

This big name linked with a move for Sarri’s job

Italian manager Maurizio Sarri is still unsafe as the West London outfit Chelsea boss with unending reports linking his job to others.

The former Napoli boss has not been on the good books of the Blues’ fans ever since he joined in the last summer transfer window especially as he failed to deliver a title yet despite sneaking into the top-four to secure qualification to the Champions League.

His relationship with the fans remains a major concern for the Blues owner Roman Abramovich who is reportedly considering to sack him after the Europa League clash against Arsenal later on Thursday.

However, out-going Italian manager Massimiliano Allegri is being linked with the job as he has already made it clear that he would move into management immediately with the next club.

Massimiliano Allegri made his decision to leave the Old Lady after his elimination from the Champions League by Ajax earlier on.

There is no doubt about his ability if Maurizio Sarri would be sacked as he helped the Italian outfit with five Serie A titles in addition to leading them to the finals of the Champions League for two years.

With Chelsea not being able to sign new players, it is yet to be seen if the Juventus boss will find it any easy making such a decision.

Sealed Deal!!! New face spotted at Chelsea’s training ground

Christian Pulisic

The West London outfit Chelsea are already in the mood for Europa League finals against North London side Arsenal later on Thursday with training already heating up.

One thing that has caught attention from pictures made available from the training ground is the sight of American footballer Christian Pulisic which is a hope for the Blues team.

Christian Pulisic is only a new face at the Stanford Bridge but he had signed for the Blues in January and was allowed to spend the remainder of 2018/19 on loan at Borussia Dortmund, from where he was bought.

From every indication, the Blues team will not be allowed to bring in new players in the summer transfer window owing to the hammer on them by the world football governing body FIFA.

Chelsea have been accused of breaching transfer regulations with foreign minor deals and they are only left with the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

However, Christian Pulisic is expected to give a feel of Eden Hazard at the club as manager Maurizio Sarri is not sure the Belgium international can be replaced.

Howbeit, Christian Pulisic might be the only new face at the North London outfit if the transfer ban is not upturned.

Olivier Giroud

It is now confirmed that the West London outfit Chelsea will not part ways with France international Olivier Giroud at the end of the season because he has already signed a contract extension with the Blues team.

This will lay to rest speculations surrounding the future of the former Arsenal forward at the club especially after he complained of not having enough playing time in the English Premier League, a report that has been dismissed by manager Maurizio Sarri.

However, reports claim that the World Cup winner has agreed on a deal after he was persuaded by the Blues team to wait as they will not be able to replace him as a result of the transfer ban.

The performance of the France international has not been convincing and it was expected that a new striker be brought in if not for the ban on the club.

Olivier Giroud total record for the club is just 17 goals in 62 appearances, with most of the goals coming as a substitute player but his Europa League record as a starter in this season has been better, having scored 10 goals in 13 and 3 assists.

Manager Maurizio Sarri will now be left with no choice than to bank on the former Arsenal man and the Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain to lead his attack on the coming season.

What is Chelsea’s hope? Transfer ban still standing

Eden Hazard

As it stands, the West London outfit Chelsea will still be unable to participate in the summer transfer window, owing to the transfer ban on the club.

The West London outfit are accused of breaching rules relating to the transfers of foreign minors, going by Article 19 of the Regulations on the Status and
Transfer of Players.

An attempt to have the ban appealed to world football’s governing body FIFA failed which makes the Court for Arbitration for Sports, CAS the next and only option available.

The hearing at CAS is yet to go down which keeps the Blues team in a very difficult situation to either indicate interest in a player or bargain for deals.

This, therefore, raises concerns of hope for the Blues team as it is not sure if they would be able to compete for titles in the coming season as well as handle the Champions League challenge.

What is more disturbing is that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has not received an appeal from Chelsea FC, according to claims by football.london.

With Eden Hazard set to leave the club, it would be unfortunate to learn that the West London outfit will not be able to replace him until after two windows.

The English Premier League outfit Chelsea are set to drop their interest in German Bundesliga Luka Jovic as the summer transfer window approaches.

Reports claim that Luka Jovic has already agreed on a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid and could be set to leave the club as soon the summer window is opened.

Luka Jovic was able to give a good account of himself in the Europa League when the Frankfurt side faced Chelsea in the semi-finals and that was able to capture the attention of the Spanish side.

With Chelsea set to lose out on the Star Player, they are reportedly paying attention to Ajax star winger David Neres as an option for the next season.

However, it is yet to be seen if the West London outfit will be able to secure any player in this summer transfer window as a result of the transfer ban which has not been lifted.

The Blues seem positive that the transfer ban will be lifted as they have already approached the Court of Arbitration for Sport to tender their appeal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will have to pay the sum of £40 million to land the Ajax star who has impressed for the Dutch side this season and has been an important part of their success.

The West London outfit have got a need for reinforcement in the right full back which seems to be a work done already with Reece James as you will be asked to return to the club.

Reece James is currently impressing in his loan spell with Wigan and has already been seen by the West London outfit to be ready for a first-team football at the Stamford Bridge.

Reece James is already attracting a number of interest from both English Premier League clubs and championship sides which would make it difficult for the West London outfit to be able to retain him at the club.

However, Reece James will come into the Stamford Bridge as a new signing in the next season knowing that Chelsea will not be allowed to register any player in the summer transfer window as a result of the transfer ban that has been handed to them.

Meanwhile, manager Maurizio Sarri has already hinted that a number of players would be asked to return to the club for the coming season
