Chelsea 0-2 Manchester United: Maurizio Sarri dismisses criticism from Blues fans after they turn on manager

Maurizio Sarri insists he is only worried about results after the Chelsea fans turned against him during the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Monday night.

Boos greeted the half-time whistle as goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba dumped the FA Cup holders out of the competition.

The dissent grew towards Sarri in the second half, with his predictable substitutions and refusal to compromise on his possession-based style of play leaving vast swathes of the home support to chant ‘f*** Sarri-ball’.

Chelsea supporters even joined in as United fans sang ‘You’re getting sacked in the morning’.

Time could be up for Sarri

The Italian, however, is not fazed by the criticism. He told talkSPORT: “I have to work on my players, not on the fans.

“I’m concerned about the results. I can understand the fans because the result was not good, but I am worried about the result.”

The Blues suffered a third defeat in their last five matches and, once again, they failed to threaten the opposition goal in Sarri’s unchanging system.
