The Italian says he wants to make sure Jose Mourinho realizes how contrite Chelsea are after the fight that followed Ross Barkley’s stoppage time equaliser against Manchester United .
Barkley slammed home from close range to rescue a point for the Blues from a 2-2 draw on Saturday afternoon, sparking pandemonium on the benches.
Chelsea’s second assistant coach Marco Ianni was seen running in front of Mourinho and punching the air , which caused Mourinho to get up and try to confront him as he went back to his seat.
Both benches became involved in the scuffle, but Sarri says that the blame only lies on Chelsea’s side.
“I didn’t see anything on the pitch,” Sarri said after the game.
“After the match I spoke with Jose. Immediately I understood that we were wrong.
“I then spoke with the member of my staff and brought him to Mourinho to say sorry. I think it is finished.”
Sarri was then asked if he’ll punish the coach who followed him from Napoli in the summer .
“I don’t know at the moment,” he said. “I want to speak to him again.
“I have dealt with the situation immediately, of course, I need to speak with Mourinho again. I want to be sure he understands it was our big mistake.”
Maurizio Sarri added that he was disappointed with his team’s second half performance, as they surrendered a half-time lead given to them by Antonio Rudiger’s header.
Anthony Martial’s brace looked to have won it for United, only for Barkley’s late leveller.
“I want to play every match for three points,” he said..
“I am very happy with the performance of the team for 60 minutes.
“After 60 mins, 1-1, we haven’t played our football, only long ball, and we were not organised for the second goal. United is better at this kind of football.”
