That’s not because I want him to leave, I think he’s doing a good job, but Sarri probably realises the job he is in and looks at the players who are not doing what he wants them to do – they never probably will.‘The maximum a manager has got out of those Chelsea players is one year, they’ll do what you say for a year and then say ‘right, I’ve had enough of you’. That’s been the nature of the club. No manager can maintain that job for a long period of time, no manager has control.‘Sarri knows there are politics behind the scenes, there always has been, but it’s been a very successful club being like that. We’ve welcomed it over last 10-15 years, they’ve been a great addition to the top of the Premier League. It’s a better Premier League for having this challenge from the new-money teams like Chelsea and City to challenge the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘It’s a better Premier League but it’s a very different model, and I think Sarri is finding that out. He’s a guy that’s been around the block and feels that his players should do as he says, but the players don’t quite do what he says when he wants and that’s a frustration for him.’More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterThursday 7 Feb 2019 11:32 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link553Shares Bournemouth recently subjected Chelsea to their heaviest defeat since 1996 (Picture: Getty)Sarri has also admitted the current Chelsea squad is difficult to motivate and Neville fears there will be inevitable consequences come the close season.‘It’s mystifying with Sarri, after his comments about struggling to motivate the players I thought ‘this isn’t going to go well’,’ he said on the Gary Neville podcast.‘I said a few weeks ago that I thought it was the beginning of the end after what we had seen at Chelsea, the win [over Huddersfield] doesn’t change my mind.‘Chelsea over the years have proven to dismiss managers once they’ve had enough of hearing their voice. You only need to think about what happened to Antonio Conte and the nonsense with Diego Costa the summer after they had won the league and done so well. We’ve seen it with Jose Mourinho, with Andre Villas-Boas.center_img Comment Maurizio Sarri has admitted it is difficult to motivate Chelsea’s players (Picture: Getty)Gary Neville fears the writing is already on the wall for Maurizio Sarri and believes the Chelsea manager is likely to be sacked at the end of the season.The former Napoli coach made an encouraging start to his Stamford Bridge tenure, embarking on a run of 18 games without defeat in all competitions before a 3-1 loss against Spurs at Wembley back in November.Chelsea remain in contention for three trophies and lead Manchester United and Arsenal in the race for fourth place ahead of this weekend’s trip to Manchester City, but comprehensive defeats at the Emirates and Bournemouth last month have cast doubt over Sarri’s methods.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe Italian has questioned the mentality of his players on several occasions this season and led a 50-minute dressing room inquest following the 4-0 defeat at the Vitality Stadium, Chelsea’s heaviest loss since 1996.ADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City Advertisementlast_img read more
