Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri doubt whether the London club will keep him in the event that he fails to win a trophy in four consecutive years.
Tottenham’s tactician and fellow Italian Mauricio Pochetinno has managed to keep his job despite not gifting the North London side a silverware.
In the buildup to the crunch game which would see the two top tactician lurk horns in a derby, Sarri admitted how long both parties have stayed without a silverware but admits that he needs to win one to save his job at the Bridge.
Asked if he would be afforded four years at Chelsea without a trophy, Sarri said: “I don’t think so, but I don’t know.
“It’s up to the club – if it’s more important to win, or more important to improve the players.
“I want to win something, just to avoid this question. Sometimes there are the conditions for winning. Sometimes not.
“It’s clear he (Pochettino) is a very important coach, with a trophy or without a trophy.”
Sarri has been full of admiration for Cristian Eriksen and the Blues tactician never hid his desire to sign the Danish midfielder in-front of the media.
When asked the Spurs player contract which looks like going to expire, Sarri said: “No, no, no”. “I like him very much, but I don’t want to talk about a player of Tottenham for the market, of course”. “I only answered a question.”
