Chelsea fans are planning to boycott upcoming Premier League games as they protest against manager Maurizio Sarri.
The Italian manager is under pressure following a disappointing debut campaign in English football, with Chelsea currently sixth in the Premier League following last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Everton.
According to the Daily Mail Chelsea season ticket holders are set to boycott upcoming home games with Brighton, West Ham and Burnley, after sections of the crowd chose to leave empty seats for the draw with Wolves earlier this month.
The protest is likely to heap more pressure on the under-fire Sarri, with the former Napoli boss only having arrived in West London last summer.
Fans have been critical over the ‘Sarri-ball’ style the Italian has tried to implement at Stamford Bridge, whilst the 60-year-old has also drawn scrutiny for his positional use of N’golo Kante.
Close to 700 fans were selling their tickets for the visit of Burnley on April 22, whilst over 400 were also up for sale for the fixture with West Ham on April 8.
The boycott is likely to show owner Roman Abramovich that the fans have lost faith in his latest managerial recruit.
