''Joke Of A Club'' - Pressure On Maurizio Sarri Grows As Angry Chelsea Fans Slam Latest Selection Blunder
The voices of discontent against Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri are growing louder following a dreadful run of recent form and the Blues boss came in for more criticism on Thursday night.
Having left Ruben Loftus-Cheek out of the squad for Thursday's Europa League tie at Malmo completely, Sarri further angered the Chelsea fans by leaving out other up-and-coming stars like Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ethan Ampadu for the match.
Many saw the first leg of this last-32 tie as a perfect opportunity to blood the youth following the below-par efforts of their more senior teammates and despite Sarri making five changes to his team, angry Chelsea fans took to Twitter to unleash their anger...
Hudson-Odoi & Ampadu are getting treated like absolute dog sh*t. Shameful.
Some compared Sarri's decision to bench the youngsters with the contrasting approach of other top European teams, with Real Madrid giving Vinicius a chance to shine in their 2-1 win at Ajax in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Sancho and Vinicius get minutes in the Champions League, while CHO is on the bench for a Europa League game & Ampadu can’t get on the bench. Joke of a club. [@HarryCFC_]
It has been difficult for younger players to break into the Chelsea first team on a regular basis in recent years and it is a problem that doesn't look like changing under Sarri's regime as manager...
Hudson-Odoi bench. Ampadu bench. This club honestly just never learns. What will it take for us to see proper change here? [@LavCFC]
Patience with Sarri appears to be growing thin...
I expected Sarri not to start CHO and Ampadu. I’m not even upset. If you are upset that means you expect 60yr old Sarri to change and you have not figured him out yet. This stubbornness of his will get him sacked. #CFC [@PBXI_ChelseaFC]
•No Ampadu whatsoever
•CHO on bench
•Barkley playing a game of football
•Azpilicueta and Jorginho Get no rest
•Our worst front 3
Sarri has questions to answer [@CFCJamie]
Regardless of the result, it seems as if Chelsea fans are beginning to grow weary of Sarri's selection choices...
