The man to replace Maurizio Sarri revealed


Emerging reports indicate that West London outfit Chelsea are in the verge of sacking Italian boss Maurizio Sarri at the end of the season.

The former Napoli boss who arrived at the Stamford Bridge about a year ago has had mixed performance as he had a very good start but results along the line started speaking otherwise of his ability.

Chelsea have got only the Europa League to fight for as they have lost out of the race for the English Premier League title, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup. To make it worst, the West London outfit cannot guarantee a top-four finish yet, especially after they were defeated by Liverpool earlier this weekend.

All of these have raised speculations over his future and it is reported that the club owner and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is ready to let him go but there have not been any official statement to that.

However, it is claimed that Watford manager Javi Gracia has been identified as the best fit for the club with his impressive performance with the Hornets.

Suggestions are that Javi Gracia would not reject the offer to work with a big side like Chelsea and will perform better than the Italian boss.

However, Maurizio Sarri seems to be unconcerned about reports of his sack as he states that he would only have his attention on making his team better and winning more games.

Meanwhile, the Blues team will hope to land the Europa League title and that could help manager Maurizio Sarri to keep his job as winning it will lead to an automatic qualification to Champions League next season.
