Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has no intention of changing his tactics and is adamant that it is the only way to be successful at Stamford Bridge. The Blues succumbed to a 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth on Wednesday, which saw them concede the fourth place to Unai Emery’s Arsenal.
After suffering their worst defeat in 22 years, Sarri grilled his Chelsea players on why they let the game slip following Joshua King’s opener.
Despite the disappointing result, Sarri insists he isn’t under pressure and won’t tinker with his philosophy.
“It’s not my problem [if the club culture is impatient],” Sarri told reporters at Cobham Training Ground, as quoted by Goal.
“I want to remain the same man. If I am a dreamer, I am a dreamer. If I have fun with my football, I want to play my football. If I believe that the organisation in a team is everything, I cannot change my mind. I don’t think [anything would change my mind], at the moment. I can change my mind in the future, I don’t know. I changed in the past. But, at the moment, no.”
“If I can change the mentality of these players, they are really very suitable for my football. I think that my job is always at risk, and I love my job for this reason. I thrive on pressure. So I love my job for everything, but I know very well the rules.”
“My job is always at risk. You can win against City, but after three days you are at risk,” he concluded.
Chelsea’s next Premier League commitment sees them welcome Huddersfield to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
