Since the Chelsea defeat at home to Manchester United on Monday night, the English media apparently only been waiting to be able to press ’breaking button’ and launch manager Maurizio Sarris firing.
But he's sitting there yet, the 60-year-old Italian, and he has no plans for early retirement, it appeared, when he Wednesday sat in front of the same press prior to the club's meeting with Malmo in the Europa League.
I imagine that I'm the manager of Chelsea for a long time. Otherwise, I can't work, it sounded easier cryptic for the beleaguered coach, who has not spoken with owner Roman Abramovich or director Marina Granovskaia after the United blamagen.
He was a very simple recipe for his and the team's problems.
- We have to win three-four battles. It is the only solution.
I really can understand our fans’ frustrations, for they are so accustomed to winning. Right now we have problems, so I can easily understand them. But there is no other way than the good performances and results.
Chelsea have lost three of the team's recent struggles and stands for Malmö facing a different formstærk resistance, first against Manchester City in the small cup final, and then in the Premier League against London rivals from Tottenham.
Not at least have his 4-3-3 system has been under intense shelling, and the supporters sneers of his turnover of 'Sarri-ball'.
in Addition, it has aroused the wonder, to the central and dependable midtbanemotor, N'Golo Edge, has been moved from its preferred position in order to make room for expensive purchased Jorginho.
But systemkritikken is ‘fake news’, believe Sarri.
- I know very well that when we are behind, I will send a striker on the pitch, and when we lead, do I need to send a defender into. But I would like to see football in a different way.
Sarri regrets in addition, the close fixtures, which do not allow much work on the training field.
But for now his players therefore provide for self-medication in the form of wins.
