Sarri 'not interested' in Christensen father's quit threat

Maurizio Sarri has dismissed claims by Andreas Christensen's father that the Chelsea centre back will ask to leave the club if he has not broken into the team by January.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, as reported by ESPN's Liam Twomey, Sarri spoke of his hope for Christensen, as he aims to give the young Danish defender more game time going forward.

Christensen's father and agent, Sten, told Danish media on Friday that he would seek a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge for Andreas if his playing time did not increase.

The defender has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge since his becoming a starter under Antonio Conte last season.

"In the last 6 he has played in three".

"In the last month I think Morata has played better and in the last three days I have seen him do very well in training". "I think he has to improve".

"If his situation doesn't change by Christmas, we'll have a chat with Chelsea and say, 'okay, what can we do for him? In the future he will be able to play very often". "Can we move him?'" he said.

"For me it's not a loan again". So I think that for his father the Europa League is probably not important, but for us it's important'.

"It's Chelsea or else he has to find another club".

"I think they don't know me very well", said Sarri. It's sort of either or.

The Denmark global has not made a single Premier League appearance for the Blues this term, however, with David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger both ahead of him in the pecking order.

"I believe that we will try to relocate Andreas come winter, if nothing has happened by Christmas, if he is not playing".

Selling him would be a hard decision for Chelsea, particularly given that Luiz, keeping him out of the team, is 32 in April and out of contract in June.
