Chelsea’s Sarri storms off on eve of Europa League final

BAKU – Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri, whose future at Stamford Bridge is in question, stomped away from a training session before Wednesday’s Europa League final, visibly angry as he threw his hat to the ground and kicked it.

Sarri was seen exchanging words with defender David Luiz after a robust challenge involving the Brazilian and Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Sarri, who immediately before the training session had told reporters that he loved his players, was then seen leaving the field along with other staff and team members, tossing his cap to the ground and kicking it in the air.

A Chelsea spokesman said Sarri was frustrated at the media’s presence at the end of the session at Baku’s Olympic Stadium, where the team is due to take on London rivals Arsenal on Wednesday.
