Former Chelsea player Gus Poyet has claimed that he wants Maurizio Sarri to stay at the club next season.
Rumours have been flying around and no one is completely certain of where he will end up. He has been linked with Juventus for a long time now. Sarri’s debut campaign started off disappointing but ended up quite successful with a third-place finish and a Europa League win.
According to reports on Goal, ex-Chelsea player Gus Poyet wants Sarri to stay at Chelsea and take them through another campaign. Poyet has had his say and thinks that after Sarri’s season he deserves to stay in England and would be good at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri, for me, has done very well.
He complemented his success after finishing third, behind only the two best clubs in England, winning the Europa League, and losing out on the League Cup on penalties. Poyet went on to say:
It looks to me that he’s had enough of the criticism for the job he’s done and actually he is the one who wants to leave. I want Sarri to stay.
Why should Sarri stay at Chelsea?
Won Europa League
Sarri managed to take his team to the Europa League final and win it with them, for the first time since 2013.
Came third in Premier League
Chelsea came third in the Premier League, only behind the two greatest teams in England, therefore proving his ability and style of football has been great for Chelsea.
Not been in England long
Sarri hasn’t been in England a long time, this was his first season and to be able to achieve what he has in this one season is very impressive for the Italian. Imagine what he could achieve in a longer time.
The fans and players like him
The players and fans at Stamford Bridge have been impressed with him, they respect him and play as he asks. It could be difficult to find a replacement like him.
