Following the win against Rafa Benitez’s men, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed he remains confident the board will find a midfielder as a replacement for the Spaniard, despite he ‘cannot do anything more’.
It has been reported the Italian manager has made Cagliari ace Nicolò Barella his main target to revamp the squad in January.
Speaking at a press conference, Sarri said: “As you have seen today, Jorginho was in trouble and on the bench there wasn’t a player for that position, so I need a player for that position, I need another option for Jorginho.
‘The club knows very well my opinion. I need a player there so it depends on the club’s decision, I can’t do anything more”.
