Maurizio Sarri says he doesn’t know about Sarri-ball and is focused on getting the results
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri doesn’t believe his stubborn style of play is holding his team back and the Italian didn’t like the shorthand name given to his system of play.
The former Napoli man believes the short name given to his style of play is meaningless and said he has no idea what Sarri-ball is.
As per the general view, the Sarri-ball has come under massive scrutiny in the past month or so, as Chelsea endured some heavy defeats away from home, none heavier than at Manchester City few days ago.
Sarri has constantly stuck with playing Jorginho in defensive midfield and deployed N’Golo Kante in a slightly advanced midfield role.
It hasn’t gone well with the Chelsea fans, especially due to the non-competence of Jorginho and the ability of Kante to play much better in the former’s position.
Asking about the Sarri-ball, the manager said:
“I don’t know the meaning of Sarriball,” he said, “As I said in England on the first day, I don’t know what Sarriball is.
“I think it’s from a journal. In Italy, I think. I have never heard it.
“I don’t know [if it would be easier without the label]. I think that, in the end, the most important things are the results. In my job, I need the result. Nothing else.”
Chelsea play Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final today. Then they have a mammoth league game against Tottenham in three days time.
