Report: Chelsea board to decide on Sarri future today

Chelsea will make a decision on the future of manager Maurizio Sarri today.

Sarri’s future at Stamford Bridge appears uncertain, despite having won the Europa League and secured Champions League qualification in his debut season at the club.

Italian champions Juventus are believed to be interested in taking the 60-year-old back to Serie A, with the Turin side seeking a replacement for the outgoing Max Allegri who is departing after five successful seasons at the Allianz Arena.

Chelsea‘s 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Europa League final was the first major trophy of Sarri’s career, the former Napoli boss having reached two cup finals in his first season in English football having suffered Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City in February.

After their trophy success on Wednesday night, Sarri spoke of his happiness in the Premier League and in West London, however according to the Express the Chelsea hierarchy will discuss his long-term future at the club.

Sarri is believed to have upset owner Roman Abramovich by criticising the decision to arrange a friendly match in Boston against MLS side New England Revolution prior to the Europa League final, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek subsequently missing the final having picked up an injury in the fixture.

Sarri’s relationship with the Chelsea fans is also of concern, having seen decisions booed by sections of the club’s support this season.
