Chelsea fans react as board prepares to swing the axe

Loads of Chelsea fans have been reacting to the latest update on Maurizio Sarri, as the Blues have reportedly rejected his proposal to stay for another season, effectively ending his time at the club.

According to The Times, Sarri will depart London amicably this summer.

The report claims that Juventus have agreed to buy out the final year of his £5m contract at Stamford Bridge.

Sarri told the club that he is willing to see out the final 12 months of the two-year deal he penned last summer, but it appears the Blues are ready to move on.

Unsurprisingly, fans can scarcely believe the decision.

Sarri arrived to a broken squad with just one world-class player in Eden Hazard, but won a European trophy, secured a top-four finish and was one penalty shoot-out away from stealing a trophy from Pep Guardiola’s champions.

And yet, the Blues’ board seems intent on giving the job to Frank Lampard, a club legend but with very little managerial experience.
