Chelsea has released a post on its social media handle stating the gaffer would be allowed to change things at the club but for a period of three games or risk being sacked after string of bad results.
The West London outfit is lining up an internal appointment on interim basis should the under-fire manager fail to change result during these periods.
First of the three games would be in the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday.
Given the scrutiny of Sarri’s position in west London, a host of managers have been linked with the post, but Chelsea have not reached out to any of the names.
Instead, Sarri’s assistant Gianfranco Zola or loan manager Eddie Newton could take charge on an interim basis, should Chelsea dispense with the Italian.
