No Chelsea exit plan for Sarri
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists he is ‘very happy’ at the club amid fresh speculation he could leave this summer.
The 60-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge last July after earning widespread praise for his work during three years at hometown club Napoli.
Sarri’s returns have been a bit mixed in England, with him openly questioning the mentality of his players but following some tough times over the winter, he still managed to guide his team to third place in the Premier League.
An EFL Cup final defeat on penalties to Manchester City has also been part of his roller coaster first year in England and he could still win a trophy, with the Europa League final against Arsenal next Wednesday in Baku set to bring down to the curtain on his maiden campaign.
Reports throughout the season have suggested the coach could be heading back to Italy and the vacancy at Juventus has further fuelled these suggestions.
Sarri though is adamant he is happy in England and is enjoying the challenge of the Premier League.
‘As I said before I am very happy to stay in the Premier League,’ he told a press conference.
‘Chelsea are one of the most important in the Premier League.
It is normal to speak to the club at the end of the season, it is normal.
‘My future is Wednesday, I only have to think with that.
I have two years left.
I will speak to the club as I want to see if they are happy with me.
As you know I like very much the Premier League, it is the most important Championship, I think.
I am excited to be here.’
