ROME – Antonio Conte said no but Rome would have a "plan b" of equal level. According to what reported by "The Daily Telegraph", Pallotta would have given a mandate to his managers to close the deal with Maurizio Sarri. The current Chelsea coach has never entered the heart of the English fans and would gladly return to the Italian soccer league. Sarri is bound by a long-standing friendship with Franco Baldini, Rome's external consultant and Pallotta's right hand man.
Maurizio Sarri has brought Chelsea back into the Champions League.
Chelsea win 3-0 against Watfird and jump to third place in the Premier standings one day from the end of the championship. Everything happens in the second half with goals from Loftus-Cheek (3 ′), David Luiz (6 ′) and Higuain (30 ′).
For these three points the Blues rise to 71 points, one more than Tottenham 4 / oea +4 on Arsenal who drew at home against Brighton. Chelsea and Arsenal are still in the running to win the Europa League. In the first semi-finals, Chelsea have drawn one by one in Frankfurt and will play the home leg.
Arsenal have won three to one against Valencia in London but the return match will be played in Spain. In the event of a shift, the Europa League final will be between London teams. Sarri could win his first trophy with Chelsea after losing two finals against Manchester City (Supercup and League Cup).
