Maurizio Sarri spoke about his future after the 4-1 thrashing of Arsenal in the Europa League final last night in Baku.
The Italian has come under much scrutiny over the season, with fans complaining about his style of play and the teams progress under his tutelage.
But a third place finish in the Premier League, alongside a Europa League trophy and a League Cup final, the season can be seen as a relative success at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking in Baku, Sarri said;
“You know very well that I love the Premier League, the level of the competition, and I am lucky because I am in Chelsea, one of the best teams in the best championship in the world,” said Sarri.
“So at the moment I am happy, but of course I want to know if the club is happy, if we can improve.
“It’s normal I think; I have a discussion with the owner after every season with every club.”
When asked if he believes he deserves to stay as Chelsea manager, Sarri said: “I think so, but it’s only my opinion.
“My opinion is not enough. Now I have to speak to my club. The season is finished one hour ago.
“So tomorrow I will being to speak to my club, with the owner, with the director, Marina (Granovskaia) I don’t know.
“But we need to speak of course, like every club at the end of the season. We need to know what the club can do for me and what I can do better for the club.
“I need to speak to the club but also the club needs to speak to me. Then in a couple of days I will decide.
