Maurizio Sarri Managing Job A Threat At Chelsea Fc

Sarri Given a Month to Save Chelsea Job
Maurizio Sarri’s fate as Chelsea’s head coach will be determined over the remainder of this month as the Italian coach seeks to convince the club’s hierarchy that he can recover some poise and still deliver Champions League qualification for 2019/2020 season.

After Sunday’s humiliating 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City, which was Chelsea’s worst defeat since 1991 and a loss which confirmed a drop from fourth to sixth place, has left Maurizio Sarri clinging to his position only seven months into a three-year deal.

The head coach will hope to progress in the Europa League, starting with Thursday’s knockout tie at Malmö, which will earn him time, given the competition’s winners a straight entry into next season’s Champions League.

Yet eliminating the side who finished third in the Swedish league last season would only marginally better his job prospects unless a team clearly struggling to come to terms with his tactical demands can improve their performances over a daunting run of domestic matches.

Chelsea will face Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup, Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League before the month is out.
Any decision over the Italian coach future would still be taken by Roman Abramovich, despite the fact that the owner has not attended a game this season and now spends the vast majority of his time in Russia and Israel.
