Sarri remains defiant after Chelsea thrashing

Maurizio Sarri insisted he is not worried about his future – or likely to change his style of play – following Chelsea’s 6-0 hammering by Manchester City.

Sarri’s side were absolutely destroyed at the Etihad Stadium, where Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick for the champions.

Sarri was asked at his post-match press conference if he feared his job as Blues head coach could be under threat.

He replied: “I don’t know. You have to ask the club. I don’t know,” he replied.

“I am worried about my team and I am worried about the performance. My job is always at risk.”

And Sarri said he had no intention of changing his style of play despite his team being thrashed again.

“No, because today I didn’t see my football. So no, because at the beginning (of the season) it (his style of football) worked,” he said.

“So now we need only to understand the reason why at the moment it isn’t working.

“I have to work for this because my target is to play my football. It’s not to change (to another style of) football because at the moment we are playing another football.”

Sarri also played down the significance of him not shaking City boss Pep Guardiola’s hand after the final whistle.

“I didn’t see him at that moment. But of course I will go to say hello to him later,” he said.

“It was by chance because I wanted to go to the dressing room and at that moment I didn’t see him. I have not a problem with Pep.”
