Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri makes Roman Abramovich admission amid calls for sack

That’s despite many Blues fans calling for Sarri to be sacked after Chelsea were thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City.

Sarri was already under pressure heading into the clash at the Etihad following a recent 4-0 thumping by Bournemouth.

But the Blues were four down inside 24 minutes at the Etihad, with Sergio Aguero going on to complete his 11th Premier League hat-trick.

Chelsea owner Abramovich would be the man making the call on Sarri’s future.

But the Italian has revealed he’d be glad to hear Abramovich’s voice.

“If the President calls, I’ll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him,” Sarri told Sky Italia.

“To be honest, I don’t know what to expect.”

Sarri has also acknowledged that talks about his future are inevitable.

He added: “I think that is right [that I am under pressure]. I am in charge of the team so, it’s right.

“I don’t know [if there will be talks]. Not at the moment.

“But I think that will happen, it’s normal. It’s something that we need to do.”

Sarri walked straight down the tunnel after the Etihad encounter, avoiding a handshake with Pep Guardiola.

And Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler suggested Sarri may know what is coming.

“I wonder if Sarri fears the worst,” Tyler said on commentary.

“It certainly looked like that.”

Chelsea’s next game sees them face Malmo in the Europa League.

That’s on Thursday but if Sarri is in charge remains to be seen.
