Chelsea lines up former Premier League victor as Maurizio Sarri replacement


Maurizio Sarri described himself as a "dreamer" and called on Chelsea to show patience in him and his methods on Friday.

That lack of goals is what's hampering Sarri's side and he brought Gonzalo Higuain to help with that but the Italian was taken off during the embarrassing loss this week. We have to be more consistent because 10 days ago we lost against Arsenal, we had a really bad game there, then we played two good games in the cup. "I don't want to change something that doesn't work well at the moment", he told reporters when asked if he would consider changing his tactics.

"The situation in England is very clear".

"I don't want to change something that isn't working, I want to see it play well and then we look to change something".

"First of all, we have to say sorry for that, because the result was a disaster", Sarri said in a press conference via Chelsea TV, ahead of the meeting with Huddersfield Town.

Lampard, who won the Premier League and the Champions League as a player at Chelsea, is now masterminding Derby County's push for promotion into the Premier League.

Chelsea winger Willian, 30, wants to sign a three-year contract, but has been frustrated at only being offered a one-year deal by the Stamford Bridge club. We need to solve the problem.

Carragher also highlighted how N'Golo Kante was now being waged in Sarri's current system.

"The adjustment I would make is a 4-2-3-1 system - which he has used rarely in his career - with N'Golo Kante returning to his most effective role alongside Jorginho. Barca were predictable, but they won".

He said: "It depends what you want from Jorginho. We can improve, we can change mentality, we can play our football".

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club will return for Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer as they remain "convinced" of his quality.

"If I have fun with my football, I want to play my football".

Sarri seems untroubled that a stubbornness to change his approach could ultimately cost him his job and insisted that he can cope with the pressure at Stamford Bridge.
