It seems to be a case of a matter of when and not if Chelsea decide to pull the trigger and sack Italian manager Maurizio Sarri, potentially less than a year into his current contract.
CFCnet looks at the next Chelsea manager odds as speculation mounts on Maurizio Sarri’s future – who will Blues fans be looking to see the club appoint next?
The Favourite According to Next Chelsea Manager Odds
The firm favourite according to the next Chelsea manager odds is Zinedine Zidane, who has been out of management since standing down as Real Madrid manager last summer. Odds of 2/1 (3.00) are currently on-offer for the Frenchman who led Real Madrid to three consecutive Champions League wins in his three seasons in-charge.
Former favourite and club legend Frank Lampard is also making waves in this market coming in at 5/1 (6.00). If the current Derby manager is called-upon then they will be looking to get the fans very much on side and trust Lampard to please Blues fans with an attacking and vibrant style of football – ultimately one that reaps silverware.
What about third-time lucky with an unemployed Jose Mourinho? It’s highly unlikely, but at 12/1 (13.0) it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.
