Ahead of their Europa League final victory over Arsenal, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri announced that he would be sorting his future with the club after the game in Baku.
The Italian tactician is reportedly set to leave Stamford Bridge after several players and fans called for his resignation. Allegedly, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is being lured to take Sarri’s place. Lampard is also set to discuss his future with Derby following a loss against Aston Villa in the play-off final. He will be talking with Derby’s owners in the coming weeks.
Sarri, on the other hand, will not be unemployed for long if Chelsea decide to sever ties with the Italian. Reportedly, Juventus are ready to pay Sarri £1.2million more than his £5million annual salary with the Blues. He is being offered a three-year deal.
“I want to think only about the final. Then I have a contract with Chelsea for two years. So, first of all, I will speak with Chelsea. But this is not the moment. Now we have to think only about the final. Because you know very well, our feeling is that we deserve to win. And so we want to win.”
Sarri admitted that the last ten months were quite turbulent for both the players and himself. But now, he believes that they are happy with how things are going.
“In this moment, I love them because I have 20-22 wonderful men, and wonderful players. So now I’m really very happy with them. And, of course, I have to consider it for the future. And I have to consider that I love English football, I love the Premier League,” Sarri added.
Chelsea’s talisman, Eden Hazard is also set to leave Stamford Bridge to join Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.
