The job of Italian boss Maurizio Sarri has already been put up after uncertainties over his future at West London outfit Chelsea.

Reports claim that the former Napoli boss has told the Blues management of his decision to quit and there are speculations that he has already agreed on a deal with Juventus.

A number of names have already been linked with the job and the England national team manager Gareth Southgate is also been linked.

He has come out to deny the speculations that he would be running for the job as he will want to focus on the English national team.

However, Gareth Southgate has pointed to his assistant Steve Holland is a better candidate for the job, praising him as a manager who has got all it takes to deliver good success at Stamford Bridge.

The England national team boss therefore, made it clear that they are both preparing for England’s summer’s European Championship and will not want to be distracted.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will have to make a stand on either keeping Maurizio Sarri at the club or not so that a new manager can be able to settle down quickly for next season’s challenge as former Juventus manager Max Allegri is being linked.
