According to reports, Chelsea’s board will sack Maurizio Sarri provided the club fails to find a berth in next season’s Champions League. Sarri joined Chelsea during the summer following the sacking of Antonio Conte. Chelsea began well under Sarri, going unbeaten in their first 12 Premier League games.
However, things have been going quite bad for Chelsea at the moment. The Blues have fallen to 6th in the Premier League table following their 6-0 drubbing against Manchester City last weekend.
It seems that Chelsea might miss out on the Champions League for the second season in a row. If this happens, the club’s board will fire Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea have two ways of qualifying for the Champions League. The first way is finishing the Premier League in the top four. The Blues are only one point behind the top four and they have a very strong chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season.
The second way to qualify for the Champions League is by winning the Europa League. Chelsea have a team which is capable of winning the Europa League. However, there are some pretty tough challengers in Inter Milan, Napoli and 5-time champions Sevilla.
Chelsea play the first leg of their Europa League round of 32 against Malmö FF tonight. After this, Chelsea play their FA Cup 5th round match against Manchester United on Monday before playing the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on the 24th.
