Chelsea give Juventus condition to have Sarri as their new manager

Frank Lampard to Replace Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea?

"It's not right. It's not the right way. You're either happy about my work or you're not happy".

The former Napoli coach, who only arrived at Stamford Bridge last July, added: "My future is Wednesday".

After beating West Brom 4-3 on penalties in the second leg of their semi-final at The Hawthorns, Villa now take on Derby at Wembley for a place in the Premier League, live on Sky Sports Football from 2pm on Monday.

Another Chelsea legend and current assistant manager, Gianfranco Zola, is a 14/1 (+1400) outsider to land the role, but bettors appear to be latching onto the other Blues legend - Lampard - to be named the club's next manager.

The Serie A title winners want a new leader to help deliver them a Champions League trophy - something that eluded Allegri despite reaching the final twice.

"Hazard is good for every team, of course", the Italian coach added when he was asked about the Belgian star. We lost two or three matches very, very badly. It's a little bit wrong in my opinion that - given the prize which is on offer - and we're the third game on at Wembley over the weekend.

"We will definitely be rooting for Villa in the play-off final, won't we?".

"So the season is a very good season".

"I think it is just a great opportunity for us to go and show everyone what a great team we are".

Chelsea were forced to pay £9 million in compensation to previous manager Antonio Conte, who was sacked after two years in charge.

The move would come five years after he was released by Chelsea as a player before he signed for Premier League rivals Manchester City.

"In this moment, we risk to have less motivation than the opponents, but probably they have more pressure on them than we do", Sarri said.

"I see this as a very positive campaign". Chelsea are one of the most important clubs in the Premier League.

"You have got to try and treat it as normal as possible; that is easier said than done, but with the group we have got, I think we have shown we can handle the big stage".
