Chelsea fans may have something to celebrate if the latest Maurizio Sarri news proves to be true.
It seems that the Italian is wanted by Serie A outfit Roma as a replacement for the disappointing Claudio Ranieri, who will be out of contract at the end of the season.
Chelsea fans, for the most part, have had enough of Sarri, he does not inspire them at all, his tactics and team selection have infuriated them more often than not and his general management capabilities are at best, not appreciated.
Don’t believe me? just get a load of some of these tweets from the Chelsea faithful
When Sarri goes I hope he takes Higuain and Jorginho with him

Think it should read “Chelsea made the wrong choice in Sarri” pic.twitter.com/42GIfcU66h

Out of the 6 teams in the top 9 that we have currently played away from home, we have conceded 17, scored 2 and lost all of them. But yeah, Sarri definitely knows what he’s doing 👍 #CFC

If Sarri stays, Chelsea will continue as a top 6 club getting the odd big result here and there. But they will never push for a title. If that is alright for some then fine. But it isn’t for me. The man has to go #CFC #LIVCHE pic.twitter.com/XBpMUIZJN3

If we can’t blame Sarri for individual errors then surely we can’t praise him when we’ve won through individual brilliance! Whichever way you look at it league results & performances have been well below par. ‘Not our day’, how many times have we said that this season! pic.twitter.com/pLKlbZJfud

Genuinely think I could manage Chelsea as well (if not better) than Sarri is and I can barely manage to maintain my own pathetic YouTube channel

Didn't want Sarri in July and don't want him now! And he can take his fucking love child with him! Anyone still backing the two fucking come at me because I'm up for an argument!!!!! Both Sarri and Jorginho out of their depth!!!!!

And all that was just after one game, the loss to Liverpool.
In fairness, there was some defending Sarri, but they were swamped out by the Sarri out brigade and the majority clearly want him gone at the end of the season.
Whether they are justified in wanting him jettisoned is open to debate but this reminds me of the Wenger out campaign at Arsenal, once it starts, it is then very hard to stop it.
