3 reasons why Chelsea must sack Maurizio Sarri immediately
At full-time when Maurizio Sarri walked past Pep Guardiola without shaking his hand, it was obvious that the result between Chelsea and Manchester City had struck a huge blow in the psyche of the Italian.
The Manchester club ran riot on Sunday, beating Chelsea 6-0 in a game that was largely one-sided for 90 minutes. It is the heaviest defeat the Blues have suffered in the Premier League and more damning is the fact that Sarri’s men have now dropped out of the top four.
Chelsea started the season with hopes of challenging for the title. But as it stands, the Blues risk missing out on the Champions League next season and their manager cannot escape the blame.
Sarri is a good coach. He is a proven winner, but he is yet to guide any side to a major trophy. Unfortunately, Chelsea look very likely to end the season without any silverware if the Italian continues to remain in charge.
A combination of tactical blunders, a lack of plan B and a host of other factor prove Sarri is not the best man to lead Chelsea in the long term.
Here are three reasons why Chelsea must sack Sarri immediately:
#3 He has brought very little improvement to the team
Chelsea had one of their poorest campaigns last season under Antonio Conte. The Blues finished the season in 5th position and went out of the Champions League in the round of 16. The arrival of Maurizio was meant to change things but currently, things don’t look any better.
The former Napoli boss was supposed to bring improvement to the side, however, all he has managed to do is to sap the remaining confidence in all Chelsea fans. The beginning of the season was good, but in the space of seven weeks, the Blues have moved from 2nd on the Premier League table to 6th.
This cannot be termed as an improvement. Sarri’s job is not only to improve on results but also to improve his players. As it stands, he has failed in both and it looks like he has no clue as to how to salvage the situation.
Conte won two trophies in his two years at Chelsea, yet he was sacked. Sarri’s Chelsea looks worse than his predecessor left it and the only way to save the season will be the axe the manager immediately.
