Time up for Maurizio Sarri? Faith is fast fading in the Chelsea coach
Defeat to Manchester United saw large sections of the Chelsea support turn on Maurizio Sarri. Adam Bate was at Stamford Bridge to see it and wonders if there is any way back for the Italian now…
Chelsea change their coach quite often but it is rarer to see the supporters turn on them. They have usually been sacked before then. So the sight and sound of Stamford Bridge treating Maurizio Sarri with derision made for an awkward evening as his Chelsea team were dumped out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United.
The key moments in the match came before the interval as Paul Pogba set up one goal for Ander Herrera before scoring the second himself, but the key moment as far as Sarri’s future is concerned came after the break. His decision to yet again replace Mateo Kovacic with Ross Barkley seemed to sum it up for supporters. This is a man out of ideas.
