In the fallout from Chelsea’s 4-0 loss to Bournemouth, Maurizio Sarri has asked for the same patience given to Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, and Pep Guardiola. 

“English football is in the hands of these teams because they had a plan and they were patient. In one the coach arrived five years ago, in another three years ago and in the other two years ago. I want to remember that in the first season [Jurgen] Klopp and Liverpool were in the middle of the table. I am a dreamer; I want to play my football,” said Sarri.

Sarri resisted calls to change his style.

“First of all, I want to do very well the plan A, I think. I don’t want to change something that, at the moment, doesn’t work very well. First of all, I want to see my football played very well, then we can go to change something,” added the Italian manager.
