Chelsea is known in the football world for hiring managers for a short period of time. Owner of the club, Roman Abramovich, is not patient with coaches and when he thinks, that the future of the club is not going in the right direction, he fires them. Most of the managers receives big financial recompense for having contract broken. Maurizio Sarri can join this group soon or he will be bought by other club for 5 million pounds.
Italian is not welcome at Stamford Bridge by the fans. ‘The Blues’ well-wishers accused him of tactical nonsense, which often leads to enormous number of passes without any effect, causes lack of chances created and conceding a lot of goals, especially shortly after a break. His personal decisions about the squad are incomprehensible, as his favorites, for example Jorginho or Alonso had a place in the first eleven assured, even though they performed badly. On the other hand young talents like Callum Hudson-Odoi had to wait for their chance until the end of the season.
Chelsea found itself on the third place in Premier League this season, but it’s only because their rivals’ inefficiency in the Top 4 fight. Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United instead of trying harder at the end of the campaign, they lost many points versus lower-listed teams. In Europa League the team advanced to the final, but it’s safe to say, that each of their opponents, maybe except for Eintracht, wouldn’t advanced from their groups in Champions League.
Londoners in the face of transfer ban are able to change their situation, which can bring profit in the future. Juventus is interested in Sarri and it’s possible, that he will become new ‘Bianconeri’ manager after the Europa League final. Frank Lampard, Derby County coach, is a good candidate to replace him. He’s respected at Stamford Bridge, will be reputable by the players, he often uses young players in the squad, whom the club has a lot and he’s not scared of changing tactics even during a game. Italian on the other hand sticks to the one method.
Chelsea is near the crisis, which Liverpool had had to overcome in the recent years and Manchester United’s been facing now. The decision is up to the management, if they want to bring a new start for the team, which can bring them back to the top. In the current situation ‘The Blues’ don’t have a lot to lose, not to take the opportunity.
