Bookies Already Pricing Sarri's Replacement
Ladbrokes are already pricing up Maurizio Sarri's replacement in the Chelsea dugout.
After yet another defeat (his eighth as Chelsea boss), the bookies slashed Sarri's Sack Race odds to just 4/6, while Zinedine Zidane is now just 2/1 to replace the Italian.
But just 6/1 says the Blues turn to a familiar face in Gianfranco Zola to be in charge on the opening day of next season, putting him level with Laurent Blanc and ahead of Jose Mourinho (16/1).
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Sarri's sacking is seemingly inevitable and the early signs point towards a stint in the dugout for former Madrid man Zidane."
