Why Sarri should be blamed but not sacked


Embattled Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been under fire and his job is being threaded after a number of defeats this season.

The West London outfit are currently left with the Europa League as their hope of winning a title while they are struggling to secure qualification to the Champions League next season with a top-four finish as they are now fifth in the in Premier League table.

There is no doubt that the relationship between the Italian boss and the fans have gone sour and this was evident in their 2-1 win over Cardiff. Despite the win, the supporters still called for his sack because they were unsatisfied with the performance of the team.

Maurizio Sarri’s issue with the Blues team started with his decision to substitute French powerhouse N’Golo Kante in the defensive midfield role for newcomer Jorginho. It is claimed that the former Leicester City man is unhappy with the development and has not been at his best since then.

More to that, the Sarriball style employed by the former Napoli boss has not been working and he has refused to have a change of it.

However, the start of life for Sarri at the Stamford Bridge has proved that he would be almost unstoppable should the players get to understand the pattern the more.
