Chelsea chiefs tell Sarri: Abramovich would welcome call

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been told owner Roman Abramovich's phone is on.

The manager is clinging to his job after the 6-0 rout at Manchester City on Sunday, after which the Italian said he would welcome a chat with Roman Abramovich “because I never hear from him".

Abramovich is out of the country but Stamford Bridge sources told the Daily Express that if Sarri wants to talk to the Russian owner, there would be no problem.

Sarri took training as usual at the club's Cobham headquarters yesterday.

“The coach and the players have to sort this out," said the sources. “That is their job."

Chelsea insist that Abramovich is not as trigger-happy as he once was, even though the axe could fall at any time in these next three weeks.
