‘Translation: Sarri Is Off To Juve’ ‘Guess It Is A Done Deal’ Fans On Twitter React To Zola’s Comments On Chelsea Manager’s Future

Chelsea assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has said he is in the dark about Maurizio Sarri’s future at the club.

There has been no comment from the Blues or Juventus about the Italian manager, but many assume he will be announced as the Bianconeri’s new head coach at some point.

Zola says, though, he is awaiting developments about Sarri:

“I’m sorry, I don’t know anything. I am waiting for news.”

Supporters believe it is confirmation that Sarri will be leaving for Juve very soon:

Reports in Italy suggest that Chelsea are stalling negotiations by holding out for Β£5.3m in compensation. Juventus are said to be reluctant to pay the amount in order to release the former Napoli coach from his contract with the Blues.

Frank Lampard, Max Allegri, Watford boss Javi Gracia and England assistant coach Steve Holland are the four main contenders to take over if Sarri leaves Stamford Bridge.

At Sky Bet, Lampard is currently 2/7 odds-on favourite to be appointed, with former Juve boss Allegri second in line.
