Maurizio Sarri responds to reports he's spoken to Roma


Amid a run of poor results, which has left the club languishing in sixth in the English Premier League table, Chelsea fans have seemingly grown exhausted of bashing besieged manager Maurizio Sarri and his brand of "Sarri ball", and have instead begun to question the tact of the London club's hierarchy.

Asked about the booing of the former Napoli star, Sarri said: "I think in the first 30 minutes we understood why Jorginho is very important for our team".

The Mirror report that reports from Italy suggest that Sarri held talks with Roma Chief Franco Baldini for dinner in London earlier this week, to discuss a potential move to the Italian capital.

The newspaper explains Di Francesco is "very likely" to make way at the end of the season and that sporting director Monchi "could also leave".

Roma are fifth in Serie A after 24 games played and face nearby Frosinone on Saturday.

Sportsmail reported this week that Sarri is is facing a virtually impossible task to save his job.

Chelsea and Sarri can not afford the misery of their poor league form to be compounded by failure in Europe, where they face Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday, after which the daunting prospect of an English League Cup final return against City awaits on Sunday.

They the Blues face Tottenham in the Premier League next Wednesday.

"Sarri just screamed at Willian, standing about ten yards away, to press the ball".

However, despite Sarri's struggles in England, the Roma legend stressed that the Chelsea boss remains one of the best coaches in the business.

"As you know very well, it's not very easy because we have no time", said the Italian. That's his way, he's carrying on. He really needed his players to go out and put in a performance tonight - yet they failed to do so during that first-half.

Jorginho has struggled badly at times when targeted by other teams, leading many to call for Kante to be restored to his favoured role, but Sarri has revealed that he does not think the France worldwide can pass the ball fast enough to suit his system.
