With the pressure increasing on his suitability to hold down the tenure as the manager of Chelsea Football Club, Maurizio Sarri desperately needs not only a result, against Huddersfield Town, this afternoon but also a decent performance from his side.
The shambles that occurred, down at the Vitality Stadium, on Wednesday evening, will not be tolerated much longer.
However, it appears that the Italian is either convinced his method will, eventually, prove successful, or steadfastly refuses to change his ways.
It’s either an indication that Sarri is resolute or has no clue about the possible collapse of the empire around him.
Ahead of the Huddersfield game, at his pre-match press conference, Sarri’s words did little to offer the support anything in the way of confidence, with the Italian remarking, as quoted by the BBC, when asked about the implementation of a ‘Plan B’ if ‘Plan A’ isn’t working.
“Why? First of all, I want to do very well the plan A, I think. I don’t want to change something that at the moment doesn’t work very well.
“First of all, I want to see my football played very well, then we can go to change something.”
Stubborn, resolute, clueless or merely stuck in his ways, you decide.
But whilst Claudio Ranieri was once described as a ‘Dead Man Walking’ Sarri could be heading down the same route!
