Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has admitted that the Europa League final against Arsenal next week will be tough.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Sarri stated that the Gunners’ need to triumph in order to qualify for next season’s Champions League, could make them more dangerous opponents.
“In this moment, we risk to have less motivation than the opponents, but probably they have more pressure on them than we do.
“So there is a positive side and a negative side in both.
“But we didn’t want to play this final for a Champions League place. As I said two months ago, we wanted the Champions League through the Premier League. Then we wanted to win a trophy.
“So the final is very important for us. We aren’t playing for Champions League, but we feel we deserve to win a trophy,” Sarri said.
