Paul Clement hints Sarri will be sacked as Chelsea boss because owner will not accept defeat

FORMER Chelsea assistant manager Paul Clement believes it's only a matter of time before Maurizio Sarri gets the chop.

The 47-year-old - who spent four years at Stamford Bridge between 2007-2011 - insists Blues owner Roman Abramovich will not accept failure.

 Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is under intense pressure after losing to Manchester City

Sarri witnessed his side lose 6-0 against Manchester City at the Etihad as the West Londoners dropped down into sixth in the table.

It was Chelsea's third consecutive away defeat in the Premier League, while they are still searching for their first goal away from Stamford Bridge in 2019.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Clement believes that Abramovich will act accordingly should his team continue to disappoint.

He said: "There's something going on that's wrong behind the scenes.

 Former Blues assistant manager Paul Clement believes Roman Abramovich could wield the axe on Sarri

"What I do know for sure is that the club will not accept that. The owner will not accept that.

"History shows that when the team is not playing at the level that is required, and expected for a club like that and what they've achieved over the years, they do take measures. They will act."

Blues supporters have called for Sarri to get sacked after Chelsea suffered their worst defeat in Premier League history.

While he also snubbed a handshake from Pep Guardiola following the full-time whistle as he made his way down the tunnel.

 The odds Sarri getting axed plummeted to 13-8 — with Zinedine Zidane and Laurent Blanc in the frame to replace him at Stamford Bridge

And he insisted his Chelsea job hangs in the balance after his side were hit for six against the Citizens.

He said: "I don’t know. You have to ask the club. I am worried about my team, I’m worried about the performance. But my job is always at risk.”

Jimenez warns Newcastle's Almiron that coming to Premier League is 'big step'

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has warned Newcastle's record buy Miguel Almiron he must adapt quickly to be a Premier League hit.

The Magpies broke their 14-year-old transfer record to sign attacker Almiron from MLS side Atlanta United last month.

The Paraguay international is available to make his debut against Wolves at Molineux on Monday.

Mexican Jimenez has been an instant success for Wolves since moving from Benfica on loan, scoring 11 times, and has told Almiron the Premier League is a level up.

He said: "It's a very big step, it's very, very different. I wasn't in the MLS but it's more or less like Mexico and I think it's a very big step for him.

"(To be a success you need) to have confidence, to be part of the team as quickly as possible, to feel you are an important part and do what you have to do, as always.

"The things you were doing before are the things which are going to give you more experience. Moving here is another type of league but it's good for him.

"He's a good player, Newcastle saw something in him to take him to the Premier League."

Almiron has been in the MLS team of the year for the past two years and scored 13 goals as Atlanta won their first MLS Cup last term.

Jimenez has four goals in his last four games in all competitions, having been a consistent performer for Wolves this season.

And he believes his experience at Atletico Madrid and Benfica has been key.

He said: "I have been in Europe for four years, it's easier to make the jump from Spain and Portugal to here but since the first match here at Wolves I've done the good things with the team.

"I've shown some good skills and want to keep going and improving.

"It's team work. Different strikers are happy when they score but you have to think about the team – the assist, movements which can give space for your team mates. You never have to quit."
