The numbers don't lie

Maurizio Sarri has won 28 of his first 43 games in charge of Chelsea in all competitions, with 6 draws and 9 losses, one more than Pep Guardiola managed in his first 43 with Manchester City (W27 D9 L7). This puts a lot into perspective given all the pressure the Italian is under. The only difference is the fact that Pep was given more time due to his accolades and success from the past. Maybe Sarriball needs more transfer windows and time just like Guardiola was given. A transition is taking place at Stamford Bridge , where predominantly defensive tactics were employed. So a change in mentality and style of play will take time because some of the players are still stuck in their old ways. Maurizio wants to revolutionize the Blues but the board and supporters are growing impatient. To the point where meetings are being taken place at board level. Frank Lampard and Zinedine Zidane identified as potential replacements for Maurizio Sarri after senior figures at Chelsea hold discussions over his future as head coach. AS Roma have even contacted representatives of Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri to see if he would be interested in coaching them next season. Is it too soon ?
