Jamie Carragher explains why Chelsea’s success despite manager changes in the past and Maurizio Sarri’s struggles to motivate his players have added to the difficulty of the Italian’s task.
Maurizio Sarri’s days could be numbered at Chelsea due to the club’s past success with changing managers mid-season, says Jamie Carragher.
Chelsea slipped to their fourth away defeat in a row at the Etihad on Sunday as they were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City, leaving Sarri’s side sitting in sixth place, having been 11 points clear of Manchester United, now in fourth, less than two months ago.
The result piled the pressure on Sarri, who has not seen his side score an away goal this year and Carragher believes that two past examples of Chelsea replacing Luiz Felipe Scolari with Guus Hiddink, and Andre Villas-Boas with Roberto Di Matteo – and the success both incoming managers had – could work against Sarri.
