Love affair with London, how to get best out of Hazard and Jorginho the leader! Sarri opens up to chelsea fans
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has opened up on his love affair with London, how to get the very best out of Eden Hazard and why Jorginho is a leader.
The Italian arrived at Chelsea in the summer with big expectations after succeeding Antonio Conte, who left the club with a Premier League title and an FA Cup win during his two seasons at Stamford Bridge.
But so far his tactics, style of play and man management of the big stars at the club have gone down a big success and he has seen the Chelsea side start the new season in great fashion, with no losses to his name so far.
However, he has opened up to sky sports and told Peter Smith how he gets the best out of start man Hazard, who already has eight goals this season, why Jorginho is a leader and his love for London.
He was quoted: “I love England, it’s my home now.
“But I’ve been to the city, the centre of London, very little as I don’t really relax.
“I get a little bit of relaxation during the international break, perhaps! But I do love living here, though.”
On Jorginho, he said: “Jorginho is really suitable to the way I like to play.
“He is a player that has many good sides to him. He wants to work hard and he’s very fast in moving the ball, which is important for us, although there is also Cesc Fabregas, who has the same potential as Jorginho.
“But he also has a big personality, although it may not seem like it from the outside. He’s an example on the pitch and outside the pitch and he can be an example for his team-mates.”
On Hazard he admitted: “It is easy to stimulate Hazard – as long as you let him have fun.
“He’s very easy, it didn’t need strategies from me. He doesn’t get influenced by the media and what happens around him. As long as he’s having fun and he plays. And he loves playing football.
“But you need important objectives for important players. And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself.”
Here is what we think on Sarri.
The start to the new season has been perfect for Sarri and fans are enjoying the style of football he has brought to the club, the player just need to believe in the Italian when things are not going his way, as at some point the team will lose a few games.
But you get the feeling the player love playing for Sarri and the fans love watching the side, so let it continue for as long as possible.
