Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri has insisted he would be happy if Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich calls him in a post-match interview with Italian media following a 6-0 loss to Manchester City.
The heavy drubbing at the hands of City is the club’s heaviest defeat in the Premier League and that has raised fresh questions about Sarri’s job security, but he was bullish about the prospect of an Abramovich phone call in a post-match interview with Sky Italia
“We’ll need to find the explanation for all this over the next few hours,”
“My sensations before kick-off were good, as they were during the week. We conceded a stupid goal in the opening minutes that affected us for the whole game
Manchester City play fantastic football and I saw an extraordinary team. We had a total blackout.
“Matches like this can leave a mark. It won’t be easy to get back on our feet after this. Football is also made of heavy defeats.
At half-time, I told the lads that if we were able to react, we’d come back stronger than ever.”
When asked about his future, Sarri made reference to an apparent lack of direction from his employers.
“If the president calls, I’ll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him,” said the Italian. “To be honest, I don’t know what to expect.”
