Manchester United legend Gary Neville has predicted the sack of Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri at the end of the season.

The former Napoli boss was said to have lashed out at his players following their defeat to Arsenal, claiming his team was difficult to motivate and that he wouldn't budge on his tactics.

According to SunSport, Sarri is the 13th manager appointed by the club under Roman Abramovich but Neville admits that he can't see Sarri remaining at Stamford Bridge.

He told Sky Sports: "I don’t think Chelsea will sack him during the season but the warning signs are there which make you think it would be surprising if it went past the summer.

"Not because I want him to leave – I think he’s doing a good job – but looking at it he probably realises the job he is in.

"He’s had a look at the players and sees the players are not doing what he wants them to do.

"They never probably will. The maximum any manager gets out of those players is one year. That’s the nature of the club.

"No manager can maintain that job for a long time. No manager has control. The manager should have control and be the voice of the football club. But there’s so much politics going on."

Chelsea are currently fourth on the log with 50 points after 15 wins, five draws and five defeats so far this term.

Sarri's predecessors Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho were shown the exit doors despite winning league titles, but failed to make top four.

The ex-Napoli chief said: “My job is always at risk — and I love my job for that reason. I thrive on pressure. I know very well the rules. You can beat Man City, but three days later you are at risk.

Legit.ng earlier reported that former Arsenal star Perry Groves has explained that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri won't stay beyond the ongoing Premier League season at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri has been under serious pressure since the Blues's defeat against Bournemouth in their last Premier League tie which was Chelsea's worst loss so far under Abramovich.

And even after the game, the former Napoli coach was said to have attacked his players in the dressing room claiming that they failed to follow instructions.
