After the recent run of poor results, particularly those away from home, the pressure is building on a beleaguered Maurizio Sarri.
His attempts to dazzle the Premier League with his ‘Sarriball’ have failed miserably and, on Sunday, we had to suffer the embarrassment of being trounced 6-0 by a Manchester City side that were on a different level to a Chelsea side that is regressing quickly.
However, despite the current situation, supporter opinion remains split on whether Sarri should be axed or should be allowed to continue.
To that effect, the respected news source, the Telegraph, is reporting that the Italian has been given two weeks for his fate to be decided.
Now, I’m not sure whether that statement equates to the dreaded vote of confidence but it certainly ramps up the pressure on the boss.
But, you could argue that by giving Sarri a reported two weeks to turn things around the situation could be far worse than it is now.
In a worst-case scenario, Chelsea could be knocked out of the Europa League by the Swedish side Malmo, knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United and humbled again, by Manchester City, in the Carabao Cup Final.
Personally, I’m not sure which way this the pendulum is going to swing this time, but I wouldn’t shed too many tears if Sarri were to be axed, if he is a square peg in a round hole better we act sooner rather than later.
