CHELSEA fans have offered to fly Maurizio Sarri back to Italy after Napoli supporters called for their former boss to return.
The Blues faithful have run out of patience with the 60-year-old following Monday’s underwhelming 2-2 draw with Burnley.
Sarri has failed to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge this season, but Napoli fans want him back to replace Carlo Ancelotti.
The Serie A side’s fans held up a banner during the 2-1 defeat to Atlanta which read: “Sarri one of us.”
And a number of Chelsea fans are so desperate to get rid of him that they even offered to pay for his flight back to the San Paolo Stadium.
One Twitter user said: “I’ll book and pay for his flight.”
Another added: “I’ll drive him to the airport for you.”
And alongside a number of praying emojis, another added: “Please please please take Sarriball back to Napoli.”
Some fans pleaded for Napoli and Chelsea to complete a straight swap deal to bring Ancelotti back to Stamford Bridge.
One said: “I’d have Ancelotti back at Chelsea over Sarri any day of the week. Swap deal with immediate effect please.”
