Why Sarri ball is not working

Timothy Aiyeku



West London outfit Chelsea were again defeated in front of their fans at the Stamford Bridge on Monday night by Man United in the round of the FA Cup.

No thanks to Paul Pogba and Herrera who ensured they add more woes to the Blues boss Maurizio Sarri who is known to be under pressure especially after the initial 6-0 humiliation against Man City.

In his reaction, Paul Merson, football analyst stated that the pattern of the former Napoli boss is a lazy tactic and it will not work out in England as the West London outfit saw their fifth defeat in their last 10 games of the season across all competitions.

This has called for questioning over the tactics and playing style by the Italian boss who has ever won ay trophy as a manager in his history.

Paul Merson stated that the West London outfit have not got the money power to be able to spend big on defenders like Man City which is the reason why his style will not work out because his players have not got the ability to carry out the instructions.

He therefore hint that the Blues made the wrong choice because Maurizio Sarri had always employed the Sarri Ball style but has never won a title.
