“He has no proper say in the transfer market”: Reputed journalist believes Sarri would be “happy” to be sacked by Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri ‘happy to be sacked’ by Chelsea amidst AS Roma interest

The Blues started the campaign really well under Sarri after he replaced his Italian compatriot Antonio Conte last summer. But things have turned ugly in recent weeks, with our clubs’ fans turning on the 60-year-old tactician.

We currently sit fifth in the table with four games to play following the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool and are yet to face both Manchester United and Leicester City away from home.

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, Duncan Castles has revealed Sarri is fed up with life at Stamford Bridge and won’t mind if he is sacked at the end of the season. (h/t The Sun)

“I have been informed by a couple of sources that Sarri is not against being sacked by Chelsea,” Castles revealed.

“He’s not enjoying his time in London, he’s not enjoying working at the club, he finds the distance between himself and the ownership immense and feels he has no proper say in the transfer market.

“His argument is the way he plays football is fine, it’s merely an issue with personnel – if he had better personnel the results would be better – to the point where he would be happy to lose his job.

“But what I’m told by more than one person is he will not resist if Chelsea decide to dismiss him and would quite happily accept his severance cheque and then take one of the bigger jobs in Serie A and return to his home country.”

The Sun claims AS Roma are keen on hiring Sarri at the end of the season, with director Franco Baldini identifying the veteran Italian as the perfect candidate to succeed Claudio Ranieri.

Sarri’s uncertain future at the Stamford Bridge

A miserable first season in the Premier League has left Sarri’s future at our club uncertain. The Italian seems to have very little say as far as the transfer are concerned and has also lost the connection with the fans.

There simply cannot be a rocky relationship between our gaffer and the board for the club to run smoothly and if that continues, I won’t be surprised if Sarri is shown the door at the end of the season.
