Maurizio Sarri Says He Is Not Sure About His Future at Chelsea

After Chelsea's 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup, earlier this week, there were questions regarding Maurizio Sarri's future at the club.

However, as per Sarri, he has not talked with club Director Marina Granovskaia or owner Roman Abramovich regarding his future at Stamford Bridge. He is continuing his job on the assumption that he will stay for a long time.

Former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane and former Chelsea player, Frank Lampard are being considered as a replacement. Other names like Zola being the interim manager is also being considered as far as reports go.

As per ESPN, Sarri's job very much depends on his next 2 matches i.e. against Malmo in the Europa League and Manchester City in the League Cup final on Sunday. The fans are getting impatient with the Sarri-Ball. Chants of "F**k Sarri-Ball" could be heard around the Stamford Bridge against United in the FA Cup.

Maurizio Sarri will, however, continue his job as always considering that he will remain the club for a long time. However, he did mention that he has received no assurance from the club.

"I have to think that I will be the manager of Chelsea for a long time, otherwise I cannot work. I am not sure [it will work], but I have to think this." Sarri continued, "I have to work, and I want to work with a long-term target."

This definitely does not look good for the Italian. Sarri has lost 5 of his last 12 matches, in all competitions, since the start of this year. Not to mention the fact that the club is now 6th and top 4 looks like a challenge. If Sarri does not change his tactics, he could be out of work sooner rather than later.
