Chelsea appointed Maurizio Sarri three weeks before the start of the 2018-19 season. In nine months time, he has won a trophy, reached a final of another and finished third in the Premier League, only behind the dynamic duo of Manchester City and Liverpool.
However, his man management skills are not the best and he probably is not the warmest boss to the fans and that has seen his job pushed to the line. Rumours of him returning to Italy have not helped the cause and he may be on his way out now Although he has tried really hard to play down the rumours, it still seems like a matter of doubt.
“Juve? In the last 20 days, I was sure to move to Roma, then to Milan and now Juventus,” he told Sky Sport.
“As long as you read the newspapers, it has no effect. Napoli fans don’t want me to join them? The fans know the love I feel for them.
“They will always have my respect but professionalism can make you take other paths but the relationship will never change.”
“I do not know if I will leave, otherwise I think it is time to celebrate and we will draw the sum of the season,” he said.
“I will ask the management to improve something and I will listen to them, what they ask to improve. I have a two-year contract.”
