Chelsea’s fight to reach the Champions League next season has been given a boost after the Blues managed to get a 1-1 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is hoping for the best during his reign as Chelsea manager and has promised more to the Chelsea fans if they let him do his job.
Sarri was appointed as Chelsea boss last summer, but the Italian has found the job very difficult as the Blues have had a mixed season, and his style of play hasn’t been appreciated by the fans especially after heavy defeats to Bournemouth and Manchester City.
Sarri who signed a three-year contract with Chelsea has assured that Chelsea will be able to compete with Manchester City and Liverpool after two years.
“The Premier League is wonderful and I want to remain in the Premier League. I want to remain at Chelsea, because the level is very, very high,” Sarri said.
“The atmosphere in the stadiums is really fantastic. And so it’s a wonderful championship. I’d like to remain here. I am sure that, in two seasons, we will be able to close to them [Liverpool and Manchester City].
“But I am not sure that, in two seasons, we will be able to be better than them. When I arrived in Naples, Napoli were, in the table the season before, 24 points from Juventus.
“In the first season we arrived to nine points from Juventus, second season to six points, third season to four points. For us it was impossible to cover completely the gap, but at the end of the third season, we were very close to doing it.”
