BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas has said that Maurizio Sarri’s future at Chelsea remains doubtful regardless of the Italian’s efforts during the ongoing campaign. The 60-year-old helped the Blues reach their objective of Champions League for next season but there are nonetheless concerns with a section of the fans critical regarding the style of play.

Speaking on BT Sport, Jenas applaud the efforts of Sarri through the season despite the ups and downs at the west London side. He added that the Italian’s position remains far from secure ahead of the summer, given he does not share a fond relationship with the club’s faithful, he said: “The problem at Chelsea is a huge turnaround with [Maurizio] Sarri coming in, but they have finished third. On the points and where they have finished, it is great, but there is a breakdown between the manager and the fans and that started earlier on in the year, and it is one of those things with Chelsea where you always fear it is not going to end well.”

Sarri missed out on the chance of securing his maiden trophy as a manager during the League Cup final earlier in the year but he can overcome the disappointment when the Blues tackle Arsenal during this month’s Europa League final. Still reports suggest that could not be sufficient to keep him at the club next season with owner Roman Abramovich pondering over the prospect of recruiting Frank Lampard as the next head coach.

Lampard has enjoyed a fruitful first season in management with Derby County, who are currently in the Championship playoffs and reports suggest that he could make a shock comeback with the Blues as their head coach next term. The Blues legend has been praised for the attacking brand of football at Pride Park and the Chelsea supporters may prefer more of the game at the Bridge.
