Maurizio Sarri's days as Chelsea manager may well be numbered after Sky Sports reported this evening that talks have been held to discuss the Italian's future at the club.
Fans were unequivocal in their ire towards the former Napoli manager during last night's humbling FA Cup defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge with many telling the 60-year-old exactly what he could do with his 'Sarri-ball' philosophy.
The Blues have endured a torrid time of late, losing 4-0 to Bournemouth at the end of last month before being absolutely trounced by a rampant Man City at the Etihad on February 10th.
Last night's home loss to rivals United comes only six days before the King's Road outfit are due to face tormentors City again in next Sunday's EFL Cup final at Wembley.
Sky report that the Chelsea board are "very concerned" with the recent performances of the side and suggest that Zinedine Zidane and Frank Lampard head a list of possible candidates to step into the managerial role should they decide to give Sarri the sack.
The ex-bank manager labelled his side's football "confusing" after falling to Ole Solskjaer's side, calling for "more aggression and more determination" from his players.
