Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is under huge pressure after the Blues were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United. The Blues have also dropped to sixth in the league after three straight away defeats, including the humiliating 6-0 loss to Manchester City.
During the FA Cup loss to Manchester United, Chelsea fans turned on Sarri and booed his substitutions.
Fans chanted ‘F*** Sarri-ball’ and ‘You don’t know what you are doing’ as they expressed their dissatisfaction over Sarri’s management.
Sarri believes winning matches will win back the support of Chelsea fans who have turned on him and want him sacked.
Asked if there’s any possibility of winning back the support of fans, Sarri said: “As I said before, it’s very easy – we need to win three or four matches in a row. That’s the only solution.
“I can understand very well the frustrations of our fans because they are used to winning and now we are in trouble so I can understand very well.
“There isn’t another way, we have to have good performances and results.”
Chelsea have failed to win back-to-back games since beating Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semifinal and a victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup in late January.
Asked if he believes Chelsea can win three or four games in a row, Sarri replied: “In this moment it is very difficult to think we are able to win three or four matches in a row, but in football everything can change in one day.
“I think we need a good performance and result and then with more confidence we can.”
Despite recent poor results, Sarri believes he can succeed at Chelsea and believes he will be a Chelsea manager for a very long time.
“I have to think I will be the Chelsea manager for a long time or I cannot work,” Sarri said when asked if he is confident he will succeed at Chelsea.
“I am not sure but I must think this and want to work with a long term target.”
