Maurizio Sarri had been fuming when Ruben Loftus Cheek suffered an injury in the friendly win of Chelsea over New England Revolution.
The international player who has played a greater role for the side in recent times had been forced to take off the field at the 60th minutes after he had come as a substitute on half-time.
Sarri has deviated the media-duties after the match. However, his reaction to this injury in a game which he didn’t want to play was pretty evident on the sidelines. As Loftus Cheek had been lying down and getting treated, Sarri simply walked to the dugout, took his coat, and threw it in anger.
Gianfranco Zola, the assistant had to go for collecting the coat but Sarri had been livid all through the second half. This is because the prospect of beating Arsenal in the finals of Europa League might be dimmed without the presence of the influential midfielder.
Loftus-Cheek has suffered an injury which is quite similar to the one which is suffered by Callum Hudson-Odoi. As a matter of fact, this had ruled him out of action until the beginning of next season.
Sarri had shown concern regarding the game in the previous week and said that it is unfortunate that they will have to go to the United States. However, they have ten days to prepare for the finals. He said that they are going there for a food reason and so he is happy to go. As a coach, he is a little worried since he knows that the team needs rest and it is not the best way to prepare for the finals.
