Maurizio Sarri decided to leave Chelsea after hearing his own fans chant 'f*** Sarri-ball' and 'Sarri out' during a 2-1 win over Cardiff back in March. 

The Juventus-bound manager was unpopular with large swathes of the Blues fanbase but went on to secure a third place finish and the Europa League.

According to the Sun, the brutal songs directed at him against Cardiff were the final straw and prompted his decision to leave at the end of the season.

The 60-year-old lasted just one campaign in English football and it is a matter of time before he is unveiled as the new Juventus boss following Massimiliano Allegri's departure. 

Angry Chelsea fans let their feelings be known during the game on March 3 after they fell behind to a Victor Camarasa opener. 

The visitors came back to win 2-1 with goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek late on.

The game was also memorable for Neil Warnock's rage at decisions that went against Cardiff

Azpilicueta was offside for his equaliser and the game was also memorable for Neil Warnock's unbridled rage after the final whistle.  

It seemed the victory did little to persuade Chelsea fans that Sarri was the right man for the job and he is heading back to Serie A, where he plied his trade with Napoli before the Stamford Bridge move last summer. 

Club legend Frank Lampard is close to being announced as Sarri's successor at his old stomping ground. 

No doubt the former midfielder and current Derby boss will be given a hero's welcome by supporters in west London.  

Frank Lampard is the man in line to replace Sarri and he is dearly loved by Blues fans
