Maurizio Sarri reacts after Chelsea fans sing abuse vs Man United

Chelsea 0 – Manchester United 2

Chelsea’s season is unravelling fast.

On Monday night at Stamford Bridge, Man United knocked the Blues out the FA Cup in the fifth round.

Goals from Ander Hererra and Paul Pogba in the first half proved decisive for United.

For Chelsea, Monday’s defeat was their third in five matches.

Bournemouth recently beat the Blues 4-0, while Man City beat them 6-0.

Next up for Chelsea are Malmo in the Europa League, before Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Man City at Wembley.

‘F*** Sarri-ball’

Chelsea’s fans turned on manager Maurizio Sarri in the Man United defeat.

In a probable epitaph for the Italian, Chelsea’s supporters sung ‘f*** Sarri-ball’ during the FA Cup defeat.

How Maurizio Sarri reacted

After the match, Maurizio Sarri was asked for his reaction to the abuse from the Chelsea fans.

Sarri told reporters “I’m worried about the results and not the fans!”

The Italian was also asked if he retains the support of the players in the locker room. Sarri said:

Of course I am not sure, but I think so.

I am not able to get out of my players a very high level of aggression and determination.

We need to move the ball faster: faster mentally, faster materially.

We need more movements without the ball, less individual actions, because when the situation is like in the second half you need to move the ball faster and have more movement, or you cannot score.

I was really very worried when I was in league two in Italy; not now.

I am worried at the moment about our results. [But] if we are able to win three or four matches in a row, it will be really very easy [to change the mood].
