I want to see him happy so he has to decide- Sarri unsure over Hazard's future

I want to see him happy so he has to decide- Sarri unsure over Hazard's future

Higuain's only season under Sarri at Napoli was such a success that he described his coach as like a father.

An interview was published with Hazard this week in which he said he had made a decision on his future. In the past we used to play more counter-attack.

"Usually we learn from Arrigo Sacchi", Sarri added.


'I think the criticism is a little unfair towards him, he had a really good start to the season, ' Hasselbaink, who played for Chelsea from 2000-2004, told Sky Sports News. He then talked about the expectations on him and said, "I'm not at all selfish".

And as Chelsea bid to hold off the challenge of Arsenal and Manchester United for Champions League qualification, Sarri feels Hazard and Higuain hold the key. "I like this kind of football".

"I'm not sure. Maybe they think I can, but I know myself and I don't think I can".


Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has insisted that his "footballing son" Gonzalo Higuain is the ideal focal point for Sarriball take effect at Stamford Bridge. He gave them a verbal volley, as if to say: "I'm on here to work..."

"When we have the ball, we have a lot of freedom, not just me but the striker and the right Willian or Pedro, so we can move a lot". Although Benzema is maybe more athletic and does more of the hard yards pressing the ball, I'm a big fan of Higuain, who is a better finisher than the Frenchman.

"It's about everyone. My target is to help the team to win something".


Richarlison enjoyed an electric start to the season with three goals in his first two appearances, but the 21-year-old was dropped for the midweek fixture against Manchester City.
