As a result of Chelsea’s string of poor results and performances, Maurizio Sarri’s future at Stamford Bridge has become increasingly uncertain.
And one club could be about to take advantage of that following their own struggles this season.
According to Sky Sports, AS Roma, who also currently find themselves as outsiders in the race for Champions League qualification, have contacted Sarri’s representatives with the view of the Italian possibly taking the reins at the Stadio Olimpico next season.
Given what Sarri accomplished at Napoli, Roma’s reported approach comes as no surprise. And as things stand, a return to Serie A is probably in everyone’s best interest.
With Chelsea showing no signs that they will improve under Sarri, a change in the Stamford Bridge dugout may be necessary.
As for the 60-year-old, what he is trying to get across probably has a better chance of working at Roma than at Chelsea with this squad of players.
They, along with the country as a whole, simply are not buying into his idea of football and what he is trying to deliver.
The whole N’Golo Kante and Jorginho situation epitomises that and is something more likely to be understood in his homeland where aspects of the game are viewed differently.
Ultimately, unless things quickly change, a divorce cannot come soon enough with Roma the perfect rebound for Sarri.
