Former Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen believes Chelsea will continue backing Maurizio Sarri for the head coach role despite the club’s 6-0 embarrassment at the hands of Manchester City last weekend. The Blues manager has come under fire with the club’s losing streak on the road and of late, this has contributed to question marks regarding his future.
However, speaking to Optus Sport, Sorensen has said that the Blues hierarchy will maintain their faith in the Italian tactician with the opportunity to turn things around, he said: “That’s where you have to trust the people in charge at the club. They choose the direction of where you’re going and they’ve gone with Sarri. And they, you would expect, have to buy full into that and you need time. I know in today’s day and age you don’t have it. You look at [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer and there will be talks now that he doesn’t deserve the manager’s job because they [Manchester United] lost. So it is really tough.”
