Sarri responds to Chelsea supporters' chants Maurizio Sarri was in defiant spirits after Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Cardiff, despite fans singing about his dismissal. The Blues won 2-1 away to Neil Warnock’s side on Sunday, needing a last-gasp Ruben Loftus-Cheek strike to earn all three points. It was another unconvincing performance from Chelsea, however, with supporters still clearly not happy with the job Sarri is doing.

Speaking after the game, Sarri was measured about the situation, admitting he can understand the situation: “They were probably unhappy for the result.

Watford are currently competing to finish 7th in the Premier League and are in the FA Cup final – where they will face Manchester City later this month.

Sarri, meanwhile, has come under fire at times this season and Chelsea are beginning to think about replacing the Italian boss.

The report also claims that Chelsea would like a head coach who is content with the structure in place at the club. This means that they would be happy to let those above them deal with transfers.

Sarri's future soon to be decided as Chelsea eye up Lampard.
Maurizio Sarri’s future at the club is set to be decided in the coming weeks as Chelsea identify Frank Lampard as the Italian’s replacement. According to Calcio Mercato, as cited on Sport Witness, ‘indirect contacts’ have been made to know the availability of the manager as AC Milan are keen on making the Italian their new boss amid concerns over Gennaro Gattuso’s position. However, Calcio Mercato suggests that the former Napoli boss is adamant on staying in the Premier League as the salaries are higher in England than the rest of Europe.
