Maurizio Sarri insists he is happy at Chelsea
The Chelsea manager knows all too well that the top brass of the club is home to the trigger-hungry. Chelsea have a shot at winning the Europa League next Wednesday when they take on Arsenal at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan.
Speaking ahead of the Europa League final, the former Napoli manager addressed questions regarding his future and said that he is happy at Chelsea and that he wants to meet the club bosses after that in order to find out whether they're happy with him or not.
"My future is Wednesday, I think. I need to think about the final at the moment. I have two years of my contract here, and so I have no contact with other clubs at the moment.
"After the final I want to know if they are happy with me or not, but I have two more years on my contract. I like very much the Premier League. It's the most important championship in the world, I think, it's very exciting to be here. But now it's time to think only about the final.
Sarri, however, did try to quieten the rumours by stating that the discussions with the club is nothing out of the ordinary. He said,
"Chelsea is one of the most important clubs in the Premier League, so I am very very happy, but we have to discuss about the situation. It's normal in every season at the end you talk with the club."
