Our Chelsea fans here are not fully expecting Antonio Conte to be at the club much longer, after recent rumours of Roman Abramovich’s plans to majorly overhaul the club this summer.
The long and much-needed revamp could start at the top with Conte being once again replaced by Max Allegri, which would please the residents of SW6 having watched the Juventus coach win back-to-back Serie A titles.
Conte has, for the majority of this season, been linked with the sack. Indeed, after defeat on the opening day of the season to Burnley and terrible summer and winter transfer windows, the Italian seemed frustrated with life at Stamford Bridge.
Yet again the rumours have failed to stop flying around the bar among our regulars, with many claiming he will be looking to leave and possibly re-take the Italy job with it being vacant at present.
The Italian has won three Premier League games so far this year, alongside being knocked out of the Carabao Cup to rivals Arsenal, suffering back-to-back three-goal defeats and being knocked out of the Champions League, things are not going well in 2018 for Conte.
Despite the aforementioned Allegri rumours, fans thinks now is the time to start looking around at other managers to take the hot seat at Stamford Bridge next season, and Abramovich should be looking at these TWO in particular…
The currently out of work former Barcelona man is looking for his next job within football and the Spanish man certainly did an outstanding job at the Nou Camp after a poor start to life with the Catalan giants.
He won the double and a treble in his time in La Liga over the two seasons in charge, amid setting all types of records. His style of play would suit Chelsea down to the ground and our punters in the tap room would welcome him to Stamford Bridge with open arms, should he make the move of course.
The Napoli boss is flying in Serie A with his attacking and dangerous Naples side looking to win Serie A for the first time in decades.
His style of play and team set up is exactly what Chelsea need and want if Conte was to move on, having created one of the most exciting teams in Europe down in southern Italy.
Our regular Blues in the bar thinks that Sarri would be a welcome addition to the Premier League and would give the Stamford Bridge faithful something to finally cheer about with his blend of exciting, quick and pleasing on the eye attacking football.
Pep Guardiola names Napoli has one of his favourite teams in Europe and bringing this mentality to the Bridge can only excite everyone associated with the club.
