Jamie Carragher believes Maurizio Sarri could be sacked after Tottenham game
Former Liverpool defender and current Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri could be sacked if the team don’t get the right result against Tottenham.
Chelsea could miss out on the Champions League qualification for the second season in a row, having lost 6-0 to Manchester City. A resurgent Manchester United look most likely to pick up the fourth place, while Arsenal are also in the running.
The Blues face Tottenham on February 27, and Carragher believes that game could decide Sarri’s future while he was speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Daily Star):
“I actually think the Tottenham game is huge as opposed to the others. I think if he lost a couple of the others it wouldn’t be the end of the world for him.
“I think the Tottenham game, I think as soon as Chelsea’s hierarchy feel they could miss out on the top four, that’s when they may make that change.”
The Englishman added that Chelsea could replace their manager if their top-four chances diminish.
Tottenham could put the nail in Sarri’s coffin
The loss to City was a bit of an embarrassment, and it will be interesting to see how Chelsea respond to that. They play the Cityzens again in the Carabao Cup final, but all eyes will be on the battle at the Bridge later this month.
