“My future is Wednesday, I think," Sarri said. "I need to think only about the final at this moment. I have two years of contract here, so I have no contract with other clubs at the moment.
"I have to speak at my club first of all after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me or not. That is it. I have two more years of contract."
There was one moment in the press conference, however, where he got slightly riled and it came right at the end of the press conference. It came when asked if he felt like his future at Chelsea was on the line with this one match in Baku.
“No, if the situation is like this I want to go immediately," the Italian added. "You cannot... 10 months of work, and then I have to play everything in 90 minutes? It's not right. It's not the right way. You're either happy about my work or you're not happy.”
Chelsea will hope to cap off an excellent season with a title as they face fellow Premier League side Arsenal in the final of the Europa League.
