Neville speaks on Chelsea sacking Sarri after Man City win

Former Manchester United star, Gary Neville has said that he will not be surprised if Chelsea decide to sack manager, Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea suffered their worst ever defeat since the start of the Premier League season in the hands of Manchester City on Sunday, with Pep Guardiola’s side cruising to a 6-0 win.

Sarri is currently in his first season in charge of the Blues, but the club have a history of quick dismissals having had 11 different managers in the last 10 years.

When quizzed about Sarri’s managerial status at Chelsea, Neville told Sky Sports: “It’s the type of club where you wouldn’t be surprised if you wake up tomorrow to the news that Chelsea have changed their manager.

“If you said at the start of the season that Chelsea would be challenging for the top four, would be in the FA Cup, still in Europe and in the Carabao Cup final, you wouldn’t think for one second that the manager would be losing his job.

“But it’s the noises that have been coming out from Chelsea in the last six or seven weeks and the interviews that Sarri has done.

“You can multiply that by 10 because we only hear a small part of it, so you can imagine on the inside it isn’t great.

“That would be a big concern, and Chelsea don’t hang around.”

Chelsea’s next fixture is against Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday.
