Maurizio Sarri deal could trigger Frank Lampard approach from Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri deal could trigger Frank Lampard approach from Chelsea

"I'm not sure whether it's Chelsea that want him to leave, or he himself wants to leave".

Current Chelsea manager Sarri led the club to the UEFA Europa League last season, but looks set to return to Serie A to hook up with Scudetto champions Juventus.

The same article states that Maurizio Sarri's anticipated appointment as the new Juventus manager has cast doubt on Kovavic's move to Chelsea FC this summer.

"But at the end of the day, he finished third behind the two best teams for many, many years in the Premier League, he won the Europa League and was in the final of the League Cup, which they lost on penalties".

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wants the Italian's successor to already be in place when his departure is announced.

Despite the big win, Norway occupy second spot in the group after France's 4-0 win over Korea Republic on Friday evening. Norway showed their class in the opening on Saturday evening with a 3-0 thumping of Nigeria .

"No disrespect to [Massimiliano] Allegri and what he's done at Juventus but they have had Carlo Ancelotti, they have had Antonio Conte, Sarri, Jose Mourinho, all managers who have done great things and never stuck with them".

Meanwhile, highly-rated Ajax coach Erik ten Haag is a 10/1 (+1000) shot to replace Sarri after impressing in the Champions League with his young Ajax side last season. "The Manchester United game really was impressive - not only the result, the way they played was really impressive".

"I know we talked earlier in the season about the style of football, about Sarriball, blah, blah, blah". We have been one of the teams in the Championship this season who try to play. The transfer ban is a blow to the club, but it actually works in Lampard's favour.

One issue with Lampard's relative lack of experience is that he hasn't had to overcome a tricky spell during his time in the dugout, how he would cope on the back of a poor run of fixtures remains to be seen. So if there is a turn of poor form under Lampard it is likely the players on the pitch will receive the supporters wrath more so than the manager.
