Asked if he feared for his job, the Italian said there was always pressure and a risk he could be sacked.

"You have to ask the club. I am worried about my team," Sarri told a news conference.

"I am worried about the performance, but my job is always at risk. So, I am not worried about the club. You have to ask the club."
