Former Chelsea player Wayne Bridge has admitted to Sky Sports that he is surprised to see Maurizio Sarri still at the helm at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Bridge said: ‘Some say it’s been successful but it’s been very up and down. ‘They’ve been very inconsistent and consistency is what you want of a big team. That’s what’s going to win you the Premier League. I don’t really know where he [Sarri] stands. I’m very surprised that he’s still there. ‘They are third [in the Premier League] and they are in a final [the Europa League] but as an ex-player and a Chelsea fan, they would like to see them higher up in the table. ‘I know it’s third but they want to see them competing [for the Premier League title].’
When Sarri himself was asked about his future last week, the Italian seemed to play coy.
‘I think so, but I am not sure. ‘As you know very well, I love English football. I love the Premier League; it’s fantastic and the level is the best in the world, I think. The atmosphere in the stadiums is wonderful. I would like very much to stay here.’
