Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri pointed out “winning three or four games in a row” is the only solution to turn things around and avoid a possible sacking after just eight months in charge at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Malmo, Sarri said: “It’s not easy because we have to play every three days. We have no time, but we are trying to solve our problems. We are trying to talk with the players, avoiding some mistakes by [watching] videos”.
“I have to think we are able to improve, and able to improve immediately. The result is not everything. In the last match we played better, especially in the first half”.
He added: “But we have to solve a big problem because we stayed in the other half for 75 minutes out of 90, and we were not able to score. They played only 15 or 16 balls into our box and they scored two goals. We have to solve this problem. It is probably a problem of aggression, determination in both boxes.”
Sarri believes he can still gain the trust of Chelsea fans despite his side’s disappointing defeats in the recent weeks.
“It’s very easy” he said.
“We need to win three or four matches in a row. It’s the only solution. I can understand very well the frustration of our fans. They are used to winning, and now we are in trouble. There isn’t another way. We only have to have good performances and good results”.
“In this moment it’s very difficult to think we can win three or four matches in a row, but in football everything can change in one day. First of all we need a good performance and result, and then with more confidence we are able to do everything”.
“I have to think I will be the manager of Chelsea for a long time, otherwise I cannot work. I am not sure [I will be] but I have to think this, because I have to work and I want to work with a long-term target”.
