'We deserved it' - Sarri toasts Chelsea's Europa League triumph

Baku, May 30, AZERTAC

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri insisted winning the Europa League against Arsenal in Baku was more important to the club than for the Italian personally despite it being his first major trophy in management, AFP reports.

"I am really very happy but the trophy is very important for the club. The name of the player and coach is less important. Of course the trophy is very important because we were in trouble in January and February and then we reacted. It is not easy to do that in the Premier League because the level is really very high.” Sarri said after Chelsea blew away their London rivals in the second half to win 4-1.

"In the end we got into the Champions League, we played the final of the League Cup and lost on penalties to Manchester City, and in the Europa League we played 15 matches and won 12 and drew three so I think we deserved to win it."

"It is very important for me but I am really very happy for my players," the Chelsea coach added.
