Chelsea got their top target Manager last summer to take over at Stampord Bridge but things have gone wrong for Maurizio Sarri in recent weeks.

Sarri caught the eye of Chelsea after had an impressive performance at Napoli during his 3 years spell but, this is premier league compare to Sarri’s team in Seria A (Napoli) where he came out in flying colour.

Coaches are like fish, he mused. 'After a while, they start to stink.

The 60 yr old Italian hit the ground with top performance at the start of the season winning 5 games on the streak and 12 games unbeaten in the premier league.

After the biggest and embarrassing defeat against Manchester City, his work was questioned and rumor going on around his job but the Italian admits he has not heard from the owner in recent weeks and does not know what will happen whenever the owner call him.


Abramovic Has Lost Interest

Abramovich has not attended a Chelsea match this season and has not been seen in London since his visa renewal application was denied last year. His absence is due as a response to the worsening of relations between London and Moscow following the Salisbury poisonings last March that denies him his UK visa renewal. During the power struggle, it seemed Abramovich was seeking a way out of Chelsea.

The talk was that £3billion would do the job and Czech investor Petr Kellner, a business partner of Abramovich with a box at Stamford Bridge, has not denied reports he is interested.

Chelsea insists the club is not for sale but the feeling is that Abramovich has less inclination to compete with the Manchester clubs in the race for elite talent. His Israeli visa means he can visit for up to six months, yet he has stayed away.

  Star Man Eden Hazard Poised To Leave This Summer

Chelsea will probably lose their best player, Eden Hazard, and their best young player, Callum Hudson-Odoi. If Sarri leaves, there is no guarantee they will keep their main striker Gonzalo Higuain. There is also disquiet among the squad at how club captain Gary Cahill has been frozen out by Sarri.

After the 3-1 defeat at Tottenham, Sarri hauled his players in for individual meetings. After the 4-0 loss at Bournemouth, a lock-in lasted 50 minutes and Sarri even asked his players what he should do to improve. Another hour of clear-the-air talks followed the 6-0 demolition at Manchester City. Sarri remains stubbornly fixed to his principles but too many players aren’t reading the script.

Players Are UnhappyKante Role Questioned

Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and N’Golo Kante are being asked to perform roles that are ill-suited to their strengths. Alonso, hooked in the second half at City, then left out of the travelling party for Malmo this week, bore the brunt of Sarri’s frustrations.

Captain Azpilicueta has, in his leadership role, exchanged frank words with his manager. The club, meanwhile, are concerned that Kante, a player handed a new £290,000-a-week contract this season, is being wasted.Sarri brought in Jorginho in the summer from Napoli and he implement him as the holding midfield role that sees Kante moved to the right midfield but seems like the tactics looks to backfire because Jorginho is always questioned about his role by not been able to defend and run as Kante is well-known at this preferred position(holding midfield).
