Angry Sarri threatens to walk amid claims Chelsea will judge all in Baku

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has declared he's prepared to quit if his job hinges on winning the Europa League final next week.

Ahead of next week's clash with Arsenal, Sarri angrily told the Chelsea hierarchy that if they are judging him purely on the outcome of the Europa League final then they should sack him immediately.

He said: “No, if the situation is like this I want to go immediately. You cannot... 10 months of work, and then I have to play everything in 90 minutes? It's not right. It's not the right way. You're either happy about my work or you're not happy."

Sarri, who has two years left on his contract, also said he will meet with Chelsea after the final to discuss his future and the season just gone.

Sarri added: “My future is Wednesday, I think. I need to think only about the final at this moment. I have two years of contract here, so I have no contact with other clubs at the moment.

“I have to speak at my club first of all after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me or not. That is it. I have two more years of contract."
