Maurizio Sarri is optimistic he would remain Chelsea’s manager next season despite the turbulent spell he experienced at Stamford Bridge in his debut season.
According to reports from Sky Sports, the former Napoli boss has begun conversations with Chelsea regarding plans for next season, a strong indication he will be in the hot seat.
And Sarri went on to confirm that in the interview for the clash against Dynamo Kiev.

“We were talking about the programme of the next pre-season, so we were trying to organise in the best way the next pre-season.
“[Speculation] is not a big problem, the problem is the results. The rest is not important at this moment. I want to win for the team, for the club, not for me. So it’s not important.
“I was confident in the past, I am confident now but I want to think only about our performances and our results.”
The Blues are in a confident mood to face Dynamo Kyiv on Thursday, after securing back to back wins in the League.
“I think we can gain the spot in the Champions League through the Premier League,” Sarri said.
“We are fighting. We are only two points [behind fourth-placed Manchester United] at the moment. We have to play one match [in hand].

“But the Europa League is a very important competition. It is the second competition in Europe.
“It’s a very important trophy, and then there is a spot for the next Champions League, so it’s a very important target for us.”
The Blues will have to negotiate a tricky tie against Wolves in the League on Sunday to keep their hopes of top four alive.
