Maurizio Sarri admits concern over Chelsea but sidesteps query on future

Monday 22:44 GMT

Maurizio Sarri admitted he does not know if Chelsea will sack him as manager and said it was right that there should be scrutiny of his position following the 6-0 hiding at Manchester City.

Asked if he feared losing his job, Sarri said “I don’t know” before admitting “my job is always a risk”, a situation that is hardly likely to be helped by what Sarri went on to say to Sky Sports Italia. This was Chelsea’s biggest defeat since a 7-0 loss to Nottingham Forest in April 1991 and followed defeats of 4-0 at Bournemouth and 2-0 at Arsenal in their two previous away games.
