Sarri: I'll talk to Chelsea

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has announced that he will hold talks over his future with the club in the next few days.

Sarri won the first major trophy of his managerial career on Wednesday as Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League Final, amidst speculation he could take over at Juventus.

“I speak to the owner, director after every season with every club. It is normal,” he said at a Press conference.

“You know very well that I love the Premier League, I am lucky I am at Chelsea. One of the best teams, in one of the best championships in the world.

“Now I have to speak to my club. The season finished an hour ago. Tomorrow I will speak to owner, director, I don’t know.

“We need to know what the club can do for me, what I can do better for the club. The club need to speak to me as well.

“I have a contract, so at the moment we are talking about nothing.”

With another cup Final and a third-place finish in the Premier League already confirming the Blues’ return to the Champions League, does the 60-year-old believe he has done enough to keep his job at Stamford Bridge?

“I think so, but it is only my opinion. My opinion is not enough.”

“I am really very happy but I think the front of the shirt is important, it is important for the club.

“It is less important for the back of the shirt, the players, the coach. We deserved to win because we were in trouble in January and February.

“It is not easy to react in the Premier League. We got into the Champions League. We played the Final in League Cup and qualified against Liverpool, Tottenham.

“Then we lost on penalties to Manchester City. In the Europa League we played 15 matches, won 12 and drew three, so we deserved to win.

“I am very happy with my players. Something changed in February. We lost 6-0 to City but we started something different. Our feeling is that we deserved to win.”
