Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri aimed a dig at the club’s owner Roman Abramovich following his side’s 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday.

The Italian could do little but watch on as his men were put to the sword by Pep Guardiola’s team. Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick, Raheem Sterling netted a brace, and Ilkay Gundogan found the net as the hosts ran riot.

This defeat saw Chelsea drop down to sixth place on the Premier League table, moving beneath Arsenal on goal difference.

Sarri was quizzed about his future at Stamford Bridge following the match and responded to questions over whether talks with Abramovich will take place shortly.

Speaking to Sky Italia, as quoted by Football Italia, the manager appeared to direct a dig towards the Blues’ owner. He said:

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.

The 6-0 loss at the Etihad Stadium marks Chelsea’s heaviest ever Premier League defeat in the club’s history.

Should Sarri be sacked?
