Chelsea approach Gianfranco Zola as Sarri replacement

Timothy Aiyeku




It has been claimed according to reports that the West London outfit Chelsea have concluded to let manager Maurizio Sarri leave the club anytime soon and have already made an approach for a manager on an interim basis.

The Italian boss is going through tough times at the Stamford Bridge after just joining the club in the last summer window. His early days were good and enjoyable but that cannot be said of now as he already is wanted out of the club following the poor results and the humiliating defeats.

A football journalist who is familiar with the Blues team Duncan Castles has given the hint that Gianfranco Zola has been approached by the Blues management to take over as Chelsea boss until the end of the season.

It is claimed that after a 6-0 humiliation against Man City and another 2-0 defeat in the hands of Man United in the FA Cup, the 0-0 draw in the Carabao Cup finals against the Pep Guardiola men did not impress the Blues management and they are already preparing his sack.

For Sarri, he does not care about the speculations surrounding his future as he stated that he is only concerned about bringing the best from his players.
