With speculation relating to a change in the managerial hot-seat at Stamford Bridge continuing, I can’t but help think Chelsea are missing a trick.
The name of the former Napoli boss, Mauricio Sarri, is being linked with the hot-seat with several sources, including the Metro, inferring that a deal has already been reached.
Now Sarri may be a more than capable manager but the fact, at the age of fifty-nine, he has yet to win any major honours is a real cause for concern.
Now, naturally, if Sarri is the latest to accept what many are now viewing as a poisoned chalice, he’ll be bringing in his own backroom staff.
But, surely, with regards to the long-term future, would it not be a better idea if Chelsea were to insist that Sarri finds room on his team for the duo of Frank Lampard and John Terry?
Lampard, looking to get into football management, has been linked with the vacancy at Derby County whilst Terry, after Villa’s failure to win the Championship Play-Off Final, could be ready to hang up his boots.
Bringing the duo to Stamford Bridge would give the club back its roots and set the tone for where the club is headed.
Do you, the Vital Chelsea fraternity, agree with my views or have I gauged this one completely wrong?
