Sarri made ‘stupid’ decision in United FA Cup loss, says Martin Keown

Martin Keown called Maurizio Sarri ‘stupid’ for keeping Callum Hudson-Odoi on the bench as the FA Cup holders crashed out of the competition at the hands of Manchester United.

First half headers from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba was enough to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side a commanding advantage and one they never looked like giving away.




Despite his team’s failure to threaten Sergio Romero, Sarri refused to introduce the teenager who the club fought so hard to keep in January amid interest from Bayern Munich.

The Stamford Bridge faithful had already made their feelings known before Sarri made the shocking decision to bring on defender Davide Zappacosta in place of Azpilicueta.

Responding to the change, BBC co-commentator Keown said: ‘He’s [Hudson-Odoi] probably wondering isn’t he.




‘I mean they’re two goals down and he’s put a defender on.

‘Is it a politcal move from the manager because it’s a stupid one if it is.’
