Chelsea Given Huge Boost In Chase For Napoli Boss: Is He The Right Man To Replace Conte?

Chelsea have been handed a huge boost in their chase for Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri. The Italian boss has led Napoli to a stellar campaign this season but has refused to commit his future to the Italian side. He led them to a brilliant season this time around and Napoli were expecting him to continue at the helm for the upcoming seasons.

The Italian has however, played coy over his future and it now seems the patience of the Napoli board has run out. ‘Maurizio Sarri’s future? You will have to ask him. He never wanted to give me an answer and his agent always said maybe. For me it is now too late since we have to move on with our plan. We have to move on and think about the future.’

He has been linked with a move to Chelsea for quite some time now. The Blues have had a rather average season with the players performing below par. Chelsea have had an unpredictable run in the last few years. After winning the league in 2014-15, they finished 10th in 2015-16.

This led to the Blues appointing Antonio Conte. The Italian had previously managed Juventus and the Italian national team and had a stellar record while in charge at Turin. He delivered the goods in his very first season at Chelsea as he led them to the league title. However, things unraveled rather poorly this time around.

The Blues have failed to finish in the top 4 and were knocked out of Europe by February. The FA Cup win last week was the saving grace but it might not be enough to save Conte’s job. The Italian has had several run-ins with the Chelsea board and it seems that Chelsea want to replace him with Sarri.

Conte’s departure will mean Chelsea have changed managers 12 times under the Roman Abramovich era. Perhaps, the Blues board feel this is the formula to success as it has seen them multiple trophies but this approach has similarly made them extremely vulnerable as well. They do not have a steady base to build on as the team is broken down and rebuilt under a new manager every few years.

Sarri should be careful of the approach adopted by the Blues board before accepting the job. Second place is simply not tolerated at Stamford Bridge and Sarri should be aware of that.
