Maurizio Sarri Blasts Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich Over Sack Threat After Manchester City Trashing

during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Chelsea FC at London Stadium on September 23, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has taken a swipe at the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich, amid suggestions his future at the London club could be under threat following Sunday’s 6-0 defeat to Manchester City.The west Londoners suffered their heaviest defeat since 1991 at the Etihad, with Sergio Aguero bagging a hat-trick as the Premier League champions blew away the visitors in 25 frantic minutes at the start of the first half. Chelsea have now lost three successive away matches, to Arsenal, Bournemouth and City, leading to speculation that Sarri’s job could be under threat as the Blues slipped to sixth in the table. Asked if he was expecting a call from Abramovich to discuss his future, Sarri responded in rather sassy fashion: ‘If the president calls, I’ll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him. To be honest, I don’t know what to expect.’He continued: ‘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.’Photo Credit: Getty
