Another Italian Coach tops Chelsea’s list to replace Antonio Conte


According to the Italian outlet Gazetta dello Sport, Maurizio Sarri’s agent has held talks with Chelsea. Sarri who is the manager of Napoli has apparently even told his coaching team to take English lessons. These strong rumours indicate that Antonio Conte will be leaving Chelsea in the summer after a disappointing campaign which sees them finish outside the top 4 and fail to qualify for the Champions League. Although they still have the chance to win the FA Cup, it looks like Chelsea will continue their hire and fire policy which has given them success in the recent past.

Maurizio Sarri’s team has thrilled all of Europe this season with their attacking play and their thrilling style of football. After consecutive reigns of Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, both pragmatic coaches, Chelsea’s fans and the board would surely prefer a more attacking manager and currently Sarri is on everyone’s minds. There is an €8m release clause in the Sarri’s contract with Napoli, which must be activated by May 31.
