Chelsea: Maurizio Sarri exit - five questions Blues must answer
The entrance to the Chelsea manager's office might as well be a revolving door. Following the departure of Maurizio Sarri to Juventus, the club are looking for their 12th different manager under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. Three of the previous 11 were temporary, including Guus Hiddink, who was at Chelsea for just 27 games but still had time to make an impact.
Since 2004, Chelsea have endured only one season that could be termed a complete write-off, when they failed to win, or finish second, in a major domestic competition or reach the last four in Europe. Only five times in that period have they finished a campaign empty-handed.
Against that backdrop, it is reasonable to ask what do Chelsea want - and, more importantly, is there anyone who can actually give it to them?
