Following Chelsea’s FA Cup fifth-round exit at the hands of Manchester United, Maurizio Sarri looks to be on the brink.
And according to Sky Sports, the Chelsea board have already started discussing potential successors for the Italian should he be relieved of his duties with both Zinedine Zidane and Frank Lampard being considered.
Given the mess the Blues currently find themselves in, it remains to be see whether a coach of Zidane’s profile would be willing to take to the Stamford Bridge dugout, while Lampard will also have some concerns given how volatile the job is and how early he is into his managerial career.
Still, given where their season is heading, the west London club have made the right choice by considering their options. Things simply cannot continue the way they are going under Sarri.
You can have a look at what Chelsea supporters have had to say on the ordeal below…

Wouldn’t give it to Lampard yet let him learn the trade a bit longer at Derby.Right now Zidane looks like the best short term solution and will ensure Hazard stays at the club

I want zidane

Frank still growing at Derby. Appointing him to come fix this would ruin his career. Zidane would give us hope but it would also mean Chelsea need to spend.
