Not sure if my players are still with me – Sarri.


Maurizio Sarri has come out to voice his frustration after last night loss at home to United saying he is not sure whether his players are still with him.

Chelsea yet again had a bad performance but this time it was at Stamford Bridge where they lost by 2-0 in the FA Cup.

“I think [the players are still with me]. Of course, I am not sure, but I think so,”

Sarri said after the game. “I think the situation with the players is really very good for the relationship, but the relationship is not so important.

It’s important to play, it’s important to get good results, but my relationship with my players is good at the moment.”

“We need all to improve because I am not able to get out of my players a very high level of aggression and determination.

“I think that, with the result, we were unlucky,” he said. “In the first half we played better than the opponent and, at the end of the first half, it was 2-0 to them.

“Then in the second half, it was really very difficult to play because they are a really physical team and defended very low, compact. So we played confused football in the second half. But, in the first half, we played well.

We need, of course, more aggression, more determination in the situation inside our box, and inside the opposing box. Because the difference was there.

We played 78 balls in the opposing goal, and United played only 16 into our box, and it was 2-0. That was the difference.
