Chelsea wanted to sign Sarri back after Lampard’s departure

Chelsea was allegedly close to welcoming Maurizio Sarri back to the club as Frank Lampard’s replacement.

Former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has overseen an immediate change of fortunes since taking the hot seat after club hero Lampard was relieved of his duties in January after a spate of underwhelming performances.

However, Blues director Marina Granovskaia was reportedly not the first choice for the German, with Italian journalist Ciro Venerato saying that she was willing to welcome Sarri back to the English capital before Roman Abramovich stepped in.

Speaking to RAI Sport, Venerato said: “Chelsea, after having sacked Lampard, wanted Sarri. Marina Granovskaia, in particular, fought for his return.”

“Sarri had said ‘yes’ to Chelsea but Roman Abramovich stopped everything. Sarri’s wife and son are pushing for Maurizio’s return to Naples.”
