Sarri Gets  Management Support

Against all other speculations of his sack, it has been reported that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has the support of the top brass.

The Daily Mail says Sarri is facing a fight to convince the club’s hierarchy that he has a long-term future at Stamford Bridge after Sunday’s humiliating 6-0 loss at Manchester City—their worst ever Premier League defeat.

Lead director Marina Granovskaia — at least in the short term — is believed to be ready to persist with Sarri. She orchestrated his appointment as Antonio Conte’s replacement last summer, with owner Roman Abramovich more distant after being refused a visa by the UK government.

Granovskaia will look to provide her appointee with an opportunity to be a success, particularly with Abramovich leaving the majority of the running of the club to her.

But amid a backlash from supporters on social media, the club face a daunting run of fixtures, including the Carabao Cup Final against Pep Guardiola’s City at Wembley later this month.
