The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern aren’t the happiest bunch right now. Indeed, the Blues in our bar are still rather down in the dumps about the nature of their Premier League campaign, despite winning the FA Cup against bitter old Jose Mourinho.
Though Antonio Conte endeared himself all over West London last year, the manner in which the title defence has gone this time around has seriously soured the feeling toward him. That’s why reports (as per the Daily Mail) suggesting Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri had emerged as the front-runner for the Chelsea job have gone down a storm online.
The Italian has made his current charges one of the most exciting in European football and, while he was unable to halt Juventus’ title win, has seen his stock seriously rise. So, having said that, here’s a look at the reaction online.

Rate Sarri tactically very highly but I reckon he'll flop in the Premier League. His non-existent rotation policy will cost him dearly and the quality of Chelsea's squad just isn't there to play the way he wants to.

Sarri to Chelsea is an exciting coup. They will play the best football since Carlo in 2009/2011.
Think Sarri is Chelsea’s best chance of stability & persuading Hazard to stay. Out of all this winning, the football has only been truly attractive with Ancelotti. Sarri could be the final piece, attractive football & winning trophies.

Would welcome Sarri Chelsea , lost Higuain at Napoli and turnt dries Mertens from a winger into a goalscoring machine , imagine what he could to Hazard
