Maurizio Sarri: 'I must adapt to Chelsea'

Share

Although manager Maurizio Sarri had encouraged fans to be patient as he looked to install his football philosophy - known as "Sarri-ball" - at Chelsea, the club made the flawless start.

One striker who will not be scoring goals for Chelsea this season is Michy Batshuayi, who has joined Valencia on a season-long loan.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made a winning start to life in the Premier League as his team enjoyed a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes, he needs to have training", Sarri said of the Belgium star. However, the talented 31-year-old, who has been a part of both the preseason games under the new coach, is contributing positively to the team and has insisted that he wants to stay with the Blues after Chelsea grabbed a penalty shootout victory over Inter Milan recently.

"I have to respect the characteristics of the players, I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and of the players, so now I am studying my players". If you look at the result, you can think about an easy game, but in the first half we were in trouble for 15 minutes against a very physical team. We did it better in the second, but in the second, there was more space and time.

"A disappointing result, not a disappointing performance, especially the first half", the Terriers boss said.

The champions of Europe, Real Madrid are all set to make a £200m bid to bring Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu this summer, though Chelsea still do not wish to sell their talisman. In the first line, we defended not like we wanted to defend.

We can expect plenty of adorableness from the Italy worldwide in the coming months, not only because of the very good boy on his shinpads but also because of his relationship with his mother. Three goals and a clean sheet. We made too many mistakes and missed our chances.

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", Rudiger said.

"I have seen passion, desire, the spirit, which we usually have in our game". I don't know. The situation until now has been very hard.

"The second goal we conceded shortly before half-time is a goal which we should never concede".
