– Sarri guided Chelsea back into Champions League football along with two cup finals
Maurizio Sarri will leave Chelsea after their Europa League clash against Arsenal in Baku, Italian newspaper, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
According to the renowned newspaper, Chelsea’s owner Roman Abramovich is expected to send Sarri packing from Stamford Bridge, due to his poor relationship with the club’s supporters, even if the Italian manager claims the Europa League silverware.
Sarri has guided Chelsea back into Champions League football long with two cup finals, but his style of play has generated loads of reaction from club supporters.
La Gazzetta suggests Roma, Milan as the next possible destinations for the 60-year-old Sarri, but the Rossoneri option depends on Champions League qualification.
Interestingly, Juventus ‘remain a possible option’ for Sarri, irrespective of his previous links with Napoli, as Max Allegri’s stay at Allianz Stadium is yet to be sorted out.
The Stamford Bridge dwellers qualified for the Europa League final in dramatic fashion after seeing off Eintracht Frankfurt in a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening, May 9.
Chelsea will battle Arsenal in Baku on May 29 after Gunners saw off Valencia in the other semi-final.
