Chelsea’s Maurizio Sarri maintains that his team will continue to play football his way despite some recent criticism from fans.
The Blues slipped to a demoralising 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday night and some cracks do seem to be appearing early in Sarri’s tenure at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea’s fans aiming chants of ‘you don’t know what you’re doing,’ at the Italian coach at the Vitality Stadium.
When asked if he would be looking to change Chelsea’s style due to their faltering recent form, Sarri was defiant.
“Why? First I want to do very well the Plan A. I don’t want to change something that isn’t working, I want to see it play well and then we look to change something,’’ Sarri told the press ahead of his sides clash with Huddersfield.
“Everybody 10 years ago knew Barcelona, they won everything because they played well their football. I want to play my football.”
The former Napoli manager was then asked if the Chelsea job has been harder than he expected.
“Probably, yes, but I knew the level was very high, this team played another football and they won with another football,” Sarri said.
Despite a strong start to the season, there are suspicions that some Chelsea players may now be looking to down tools on their Italian manager, much like they did with Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.
