Chelsea scored two late goals to come from behind and beat Cardiff City 2-1 at the Cardiff City Stadium in Wales.
Victor Camarasa scored a 46th minute goal to give Cardiff an early second-half goal, and at this point, the Chelsea fans were frustrated with what they had seen all game.
Chelsea didn’t get a shot on target in the first-half and barely tested the Cardiff goalkeeper until late in the game, despite having a bulk share of possession.
Even before the game reached half-time, Chelsea fans were tired of what they had seen and there were chants of “f**k Sarri-ball” and “we want Sarri out” from the fans as the Blues put in another slow and uninspired performance.
Despite being on the receiving end of boos and negative chants from his own fans, Sarri has revealed that the fans let down the players by choosing to chant about him rather than getting behind the team who were in search of a win.
“I have been on the pitch for the last 45 years. I was really disappointed for my players because they were fighting,” Sarri told reporters after the game when asked about the chants.
“Maybe it was better to wait until the end of the match. I can understand. Unfortunately I am getting used to this. I need to work in order to change their opinion.”
Asked if he would ever consider resigning due to the fans’ concerns, Sarri added: “No, no. I want to stay here.
“When I arrived here the team in the table were 30 points behind City, fifth and I want to stay here and improve the results. It wasn’t easy work. There is a difference between City, Liverpool and us. We are fighting and trying, we have to work very well.”
Asked how he can change the opinion of Chelsea fans, Sarri admitted that the only way would be to win games.
The Italian said: “I don’t know. I think we only need to win matches. If you win then the fans will be happy.
“We need to be better and you need to win matches like this. We lost in Everton and played some good football. Today we started badly but in the end we won, with a bit of luck. But at Everton there was unlucky moments.”
