Maurizio stunningly tells Abramovic ‘sack me immediately’ as Chelsea close in on world class Italian
Maurizio Sarri has told Roman Abramovic to sack him immediately if his Chelsea fate relies on the Europa League final.
Sarri has not won over many of the Blues fans and has had a number of falling’s out with some of the first team, but the Italian has adapted well to the English game and has managed to get Chelsea back inside the top three and reach two finals this season.
But that does not seem to be enough as speculation in the media has suggested that he will be sacked at the end of the season if he fails to beat Arsenal in the Europa League final at the end of the month, with the likes of Juventus coach Max Allegri linked.
Allegri was linked with a move to Chelsea last summer but a move never materialised and in the end Abramovic appointed Sarri, but now that Allegri has left Juventus after another Serie A title, the Blues will reportedly reignite their interest.
Asked if the Europa League final will determine whether he is sacked by Chelsea, Sarri fired back on Sky Sports: ‘If the situation is like this I want to go immediately.
‘Ten months of work then I have to lay everything [on the line] in 90 mins, it’s not right, either you are happy about my work or you are not happy.’
Sarri also revealed that he is due to hold talks with Chelsea’s hierarchy about his future after the Europa League final.
‘As you know I like very much the Premier League,’ said Sarri.
‘At the moment it’s the most important championship in the world. It’s very exciting to be here. But now I only think about the final.
“As I said before, I’m very happy to stay in the Premier League, Chelsea is one of the most important clubs in the Premier League I think. I’m happy but we have to discuss the situation.
‘It’s normal at every season you have to discuss with the club.’
Love him or hate him, but Sarri has done what he was brought to the club to do. Get Chelsea competing for trophies and get back inside the top four so they can play Champions League football next season.
Sacking him would be a big mistake, even if Allegri was brought in to replace the Italian.
