Mateo Kovacic hails under-fire boss Maurizio Sarri

Nuno Espirito Santo

Alejandro Moreno addresses the latest rumours surrounding Alexis Sanchez, Sadio Mane, Antoine Griezmann and more in Transfer Rater.

Former Premier League champions, Chelsea have finally identified the manager that will replace current boss, Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard - the Blues' all-time record goalscorer - is now manager of Derby County, while Nuno's Wolves side have impressed in the Premier League.

Sarri appears to have dodged the sack for the time being, though, and Kovacic - used in 26 of Chelsea's 30 Premier League games this season - has praised the Italian for sticking to his guns amid the ongoing criticism.

"Of course it's frustrating", Giroud told French radio station RTL.

Maradona slams Argentina players and 'inept' AFA president Tapia
Maradona praised Martino's leadership, but stressed his fellow Argentine will need time to get to know and work with Mexico's players.

Take a look at the players who now look likely to exit Stamford Bridge at the end of the season on free transfers! "I have the impression there is clearly no competition [for places in attack] since January".

"And I think that when you take a decision, you have to make sure that you will stick to that one and give another chance, another season for the coach that you chose to buy".

Former Blues defender Leboeuf would prefer to see faith shown in a man still adjusting to English football, telling ESPN FC: "I think it's been a hard season for him, I think for some players as well we are at the end of a cycle so maybe some players need to go to be replaced with others who can prove that they deserve to go to Chelsea Football Club".

Sarri may opt to send him out on loan again to gain more experience, but the aforementioned transfer ban may just force Sarri to keep him within the playing ranks, and if he can develop on the training pitch then could become a midfield star of the future at the Bridge.
