Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri waits to see if owner Roman Abramovich will sack him

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will only lose his job if owner Roman Abramovich decides to intervene and cut him loose.

The Italian was left clinging to his job on Sunday night after Chelsea’s embarrassing 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.

Sarri, who took training as usual on Monday morning, even admitted he was under threat after Chelsea crashed to their biggest defeat in 28 years against the rampant Premier League champions.

Club director Marina Granovskaia made the decision to hire Sarri in the summer after being attracted by ‘some of the most exciting football in Europe’ from his Napoli team.

It appears the final decision on Sarri’s future will be in Granovskaia’s hands unless Abramovich takes it upon himself to step in and make the call.

Sarri remained coy over his future on Sunday and, when asked if he was expecting a call from Abramovich, pointed towards the power structure at Chelsea.

‘You have to ask the club,’ Sarri said amid growing calls for his removal after a fourth defeat in eight games. ‘I’m worried about my team. I’m worried about the performance. My job is always at risk.

‘If the president calls, I’ll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him.

‘To be honest, I don’t know what to expect. I didn’t see my football. At the beginning of the season it worked. Now we need to understand the reasons why it isn’t working. It is not easy.’

Chelsea players looked downbeat as they pulled into the club’s Cobham training base on Monday morning.

Eden Hazard, David Luiz and N’Golo Kante were among those seen driving into the facility as they swiftly returned to the training pitch. 

An under-pressure Sarri must now rouse his players for Thursday’s Europa League knockout tie with Swedish side Malmo.

Things then get even tougher as they face a rejuvenated Manchester United in the FA Cup next Monday.

Former Chelsea captain Frank Lampard is the bookmakers’ favourite to become the next permanent boss if Sarri is shown the door.

Lampard has impressed so far this season with Derby County in the Championship in what is his first job as a manager since ending his illustrious playing career.  

Lampard has been installed as 2/1 favourite with a few firms, edging out three-time Champions League winner Zinedine Zidane, who is yet to return to management since leaving Real Madrid.

Jose Mourinho, sacked by Manchester United in December, is out at 12/1 for a return to Chelsea for a third spell.

Lampard enjoyed a trophy-laden career as a player at Chelsea and would be a hit with supporters if he does one day become first-team manager. 

He returned to Stamford Bridge with Derby earlier this season and received a hero’s welcome before his side gave the hosts a scare before losing 3-2.
