Chelsea boss Sarri: I'd like to hear from Abramovich

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he'd like to hear from club owner Roman Abramovich.

Speaking to Sky Italia after their thrashing by Manchester City, Sarri was asked what he expected Abramovich to say about the result.

“If the President calls, I'll be happy, seeing as I never hear from him. To be honest, I don't know what to expect," he replied.

"Matches like this can leave a mark. It won't be easy to get back on our feet after this. Football is also made of heavy defeats. At half-time, I told the lads that if we were able to react, we'd come back stronger than ever."
