MAURIZIO SARRI will lead Chelsea’s Europa League press conference for Wednesday, suggesting he will not be sacked this week.
Sarri has come under fire in recent weeks after the Blues suffered three loses in their last four games.
The worst of the bunch came yesterday, as Manchester City hit six past a helpless Chelsea - handing the Blues a record breaking Premier League defeat.
After the dismal run, that has seen Chelsea lose their last three consecutive away matches, odds have been slashed on Sarri becoming the latest premature Stamford Bridge sacking.
Ex-Real Madrid boss Zideane Zidane and former PSG manager Laurent Blanc have emerged as odds on favourites to replace Sarri, if he is to be fired.
However, a press release including Sarri’s name ahead of Chelsea’s Europa League round of 32 tie against Malmo suggest the Italian will not yet depart from London.
