I'm Happy At Chelsea - Blues Star Plays Down Transfer Talk

"Frank knows Chelsea, he knows the players and the players will respect him".

However, Chelsea chiefs are reportedly making last-minute moves to ensure Sarri reconsiders his stand, after guiding the west London dwellers to a third-place finish in the Premier League alongside winning the Europa League.

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.

Given all this, Sarri still guided his team to third in the league, made two major finals both home and overseas and lifted the Europa League trophy.

However, those two previous spells as Chelsea both ended acrimoniously with Mourinho being sacked by Blues owner Roman Abramovich amid talk of unrest between the Portuguese and the club's board.


He led his Derby team to the playoff finals after finishing 6th and engineered a cup shock at Old Trafford, beating his old enemies Man Utd and former mentor Jose Mourinho in the Carabao Cup.

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.

Jesus has since accepted to become Flamengo manager, replacing Abel Braga who left the Brazil club in May. They play really good football.

"I know we talked earlier in the season about the style of football, about Sarriball, blah, blah, blah". We want to try to play.

But Lampard has only enjoyed one season of senior management with Derby in the Championship. "Or are you going to go with someone who the fans are going to love to have back?" And one Manchester United great thinks that Lampard can be Chelsea's answer to Pep Guardiola. 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.
