Sarri 'sorry' to Chelsea fans

Maurizio Sarri has apologised for Chelsea’s 6-0 capitulation at the hands of Manchester City and admitted that ‘I don’t know’ what the future holds.

Sarri presided over Chelsea’s heaviest-ever Premier League loss on Sunday, with City scoring four of their goals in the opening half-hour, and the former Napoli boss conceded the Blues were ‘in trouble’.

“In the last three matches away we’ve played very badly so we need to say sorry,” he told BBC Sport.

“I don’t know [what my future holds]. You are asking me [about] something which is not my job. I am worried about our performances, not about the club. You’d have to ask the club.

“I want to study, I want to understand. I do my best and the players do their best. For the moment I have to say only sorry.

“I’m surprised because at the beginning of the season we played better away than at home so I don’t know what has happened but at the moment we are in trouble.

“In the last three or four matches we were without a reaction from the first difficulty so we need to understand.

“It is difficult to describe our performance, it’s difficult also to understand. We started well but after four minutes we conceded a goal in a stupid way.

“We had only to stay in the match but the reaction was not good. In the 20 minutes after the first goal we made a lot of mistakes against the wrong opponents because they played some fantastic football.”
