With Antonio Conte set for the axe, chain-smoking, beautiful playing Sarri is the leading candidate to replace him.
Following the FA cup final in which Chelsea beat Manchester United, Chelsea fans were braced for the sacking of Antonio Conte and 21 days later, they still are. And the leading candidate is Maurizio Sarri of Napoli.
Sarri has provided Napoli with such a philosophy that it has gained a name of its own in Sarriball. The philosophy is an all out attacking one which involves the retention of possession and attacking via short passes while maintaining short triangular patterns. Following the pragmatic approaches of Mourinho and Conte, most fans are looking for a breath of fresh air and majority believe that Sarri is the man to provide it.
Appointing Maurizio Sarri might finally fulfill Abramovich's dream of having Chelsea play football that will catch the worlds eye. Sarriball is similar to the stuff being played at Manchester City and Sarri is seen as a marketable manager . Though a deal to bring Sarri has not been finalized, it is believed to be close and also close is the departure of Conte, who one can say has conquered English football.
Should Sarri be appointed Blues manager, he will be given the task of making Chelsea Premier League champions again after the failure of last season where Conte could only guide Chelsea to a fifth placed finish.
