Why Sarri’s public apology might be too late


English Premier League outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has apologized to the club fans after their 4-0 trashing by Bournemouth in the Premier League encounter on Wednesday.

It was obvious that the Italian boss was hit by the defeat and he lost it when he faced the press to blast the players for not being motivated and not knowing anything about his style of play.

His actions have been blasted by pundits and the press as he is believed to be pushing the blame back on his players, a development that could cast spell on his reign at the club.

However, Maurizio Sarri told the fans he is sorry for the bad results, describing it as a disaster as he pleads for more patience with his team.

With suggestions that he might be sacked by the club, it is assumed that the apology might be accepted by the fans but not the club owner who is bent on results.

The hope of the West London side qualifying to the Champions League next season is now slim after the 4-1 defeat against Bournemouth and that could be the major reason why he would be shown the way out knowing that he has been given the mandate to ensure qualification.
