Maurizio Sarri responds to AS Roma managerial links
With various reports linking him with a move to back to Italy to join AS Roma, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri hopes to remain in the Premier League regardless of his future at Stamford Bridge.
Sarri has endured turbulent times in his first season at Chelsea with many predicting his sacking a number of times, but the Italian manager has recovered well to guide his team to a top-four finish and a place in the EFL Cup final where they lost to Manchester City. AS Roma are on the look for a new manager with Claudio Ranieri in charge until the end of the season.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Eintracht Frankfurt clash in the Europa League, Sarri revealed his desire to stay at Chelsea, "As I said in every press conference, I want to stay here. I like very much English football, the atmosphere in the stadiums. And so, if I can, I want to stay here. My target is to stay in English football at the moment."
When asked whether only sacking would see him leave Chelsea, Sarri joked by saying, "I can try with another English club (he jokes). I don't know (which one)."
