Chelsea signed Italian Maurizio Sarri from Napoli last season to lead the Blues this season after sacking former boss Antonio Conte.
Sarri had a difficult first season in charge of Chelsea, and was rumoured that he was on the verge of being sacked in February after heavy defeats to Bournemouth and Manchester City. With Chelsea slipping out of the top four and fears of missing Champions League football for a second consecutive season, it looked like Sarri might not even finish his first season in England, and his style of play was criticised by the media.
However, Sarri eventually weathered the storm and led Chelsea to a third-placed finish, and the Blues are currently in the Europa League final. It has been a decent season for Chelsea who also reached the Carabao Cup final but lost on penalties, and Sarri has revealed that although he reached the club’s target, he’s unsure he’d be at the Bridge next season.
When asked if he will still be at Stamford Bridge next season, Sarri said: “I think so, but I am not sure.
“I can say only that the club asked me for the Champions League, and we reached the target.
“As you know very well, I love English football. I love the Premier League; it’s fantastic and the level is the best in the world, I think. The atmosphere in the stadiums is wonderful. I would like very much to stay here.”
Speaking about the difficulty of the season, Sarri continued: “The season was really very difficult for us.
“But I think at the end we are happy because we were in trouble three months ago, but were able to react very well.
“In the end we are in the third position and reached the target of the club – the Champions League.
“We played a final against Man City in the League Cup, and before the final in the League Cup we played against Liverpool and Tottenham, the two finalists of the Champions League.
“Now we have to play a very important match, the final in the Europa League. At the moment the season is very good, but the season can become wonderful.”
