Sarri Maurizio

Coach Maurizio Sarri has disclosed he is tempted to use Belgian international, Eden Hazard as the Blues centre-forward.

Eden Hazard, 27, has been at top form this season scoring 7 goals in 8 Premier League matches, he also won the EPL best player for the month of September.

However, the talented star has been linked with moves to Spain but he has reassured Chelsea he will not leave in January, although coach Sarri has insisted that the star will remain at Stamford Bridge even after his contract lapse in 2020.

Eden Hazard has scored more goals than Pedro, Willian, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud combine, which may have made Sarri start pondering on whether to change the Belgium star’s role and make him a centre-forward.

Sarri disclosed in a statement that he was ‘tempted to use Hazard as a centre-forward and I might consider it again in future.’

He, however, hinted that he believes it is not yet time to make such decision as the Blues still ‘need to believe in Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata.’

So far this season, the Blues centre-forwards, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have not played their expected roles effectively leaving Eden Hazard with the role of scoring goals for Chelsea.

Eden Hazard

The Blues manager, Maurizio Sarri in a recent statement has listed the three players that helped Chelsea to a strong start on his arrival to Stamford Bridge.

Sarri’s coming to England was delayed by Napoli over issues of his release clause.

Many football fans had believed his late arrival at Chelsea will affect him especially on how to implement his attacking style of football in the club.

Sarri disclosed he had also been doubtful of a fine start but he met a working machinery which made his style of game easier to implement.

According to the Italian, three Blues players were instrumental to Chelsea strong start and they are; Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro – who are all Spanish.

However, it will be surprising to some football fans that Chelsea talisman, Eden Hazard did not make the list despite his performance so far this season.

Sarri disclosed that the three Spanish players were helpful at Chelsea because they ‘already speak our football language,’ which means they understood the Italian style of football.

He hinted that Sarri ball was effective at Napoli within few weeks because they were already in the system.

Chelsea are currently at the second spot on the EPL table with Man City taking the lead.

Coach Maurizio Sarri reveals Eden Hazard’s weakness

Sarri Maurizio

Amidst growing speculations that Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard could be gone by the end of this campaign, Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has taken out time to reveal Eden Hazard’s weakness.

According to the Italian, the Belgium international doesn’t know the importance of scoring goals and creating goal assists.

Maurizio Sarri in previous post matches statements had urged the Belgian striker to set his goal targets for the current campaign at 40, which will surpass any of his past records if it becomes a reality.

Hazard, 27, is well known for his good dribbling skills but has not been all that effective in terms of scoring goals.

According to Sarri, Hazard could have done better scoring goals but the player’s main aim is to have fun on the pitch, which is restricting him.

Sarri in a statement disclosed that Eden Hazard ‘is immense and I don’t think even he knows how much he can still improve.’

The Italian made it known that the Blues forward can be one of the best three in the world if he stops seeing football as fun on every occasion.

Sarri said Hazard at times ‘doesn’t realize the importance of moving from fun to reaping the rewards.’

The coach finally added that the Blues forward needs to work for the good of the team and not for his personal glory.

Alvaro Morata

Former Chelsea player and one time Ballon d’Or winner, Andriy Shevchenko, has reached out to Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata.

The legendary goal scorer, who also had a poor moment at Chelsea advised the struggling Morata to be more clinical in terms of scoring goals.

Alvaro Morata has found himself struggling to score goals for Chelsea since his arrival from Real Madrid.

This season has seen the Blues striker score just two goals ( against Arsenal in the EPL and against Mol Vidi in the UEL) which is too low for a player of his calibre.

His performance has further raised speculations whether he is another Fernando Torres – who also struggled to perform for the Blues and had to take the exit earlier than expected.

Andriy Shevchenko in his statement quoted by Goal.com said  ‘The main thing is that Alvaro Morata has chances.’

He, however, believes that the striker can up his game if only he becomes ‘more clinical in front of goal.’

Andriy Shevchenko is confident of Morata scoring more goals if he takes to his advise.

Hopefully, Coach Maurizio Sarri will give the Spanish striker some more playing time to see if he will improve before making a final decision.

Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is desperate to have Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic at the Old Trafford.

Mourinho is a big fan of the player and he is ready to break the club’s transfer record to sign him having received the backing of the club.

The United boss demonstrated his strong desire to have the player by travelling to East Europe to watch Savic play for Serbia against Montenegro.

The UEFA Nations League ended 2 – 0 in favour of Serbia.

Savic would have been a Red Devil by now should his asking price had not increased as the Portuguese manager made an attempt to sign him at the summer.

With United struggling at the moment, the former Chelsea boss has made it clear the star midfielder would be tempted to the Old Trafford in the January window.

However, Mourinho’s Chelsea pal Mateja Kezman is expected to be influential on the matter as the United manager hopes on his past relationship.

Kezman was the first recruit by Mourinho to England when he first joined Chelsea and luckily for the Portugues boss, his former player is the current agent of the Lazio midfielder.

However, the final decision is expected to be made by the club as they will find it difficult to release the player.

cesc fabregas

The Mirror reported that small La Liga contenders, Atletico Madrid are set to sign Chelsea midfielder and Spain international, Cesc Fabregas in the January transfer window.

This comes after the midfielder, who just returned from an injury, had disclosed he would like to train under coach Maurizio Sarri and wished the Italian had taken over as Chelsea coach earlier.

But his decision may be about to change with Atletico Madrid ready to bring him back to the Spanish La Liga – having once played at Nou Camp.

Cesc Fabregas’s contract is expected to end in 2019 and Chelsea can use the January transfer window to get back at least part of the £33 million they paid as his transfer fee back in 2014.

31-year-old Cesc Fabregas is adamant over his desire to remain at Chelsea despite his limited playing chances with Sarri preferring the duo of Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic ahead of him and also the Italian coach ”likely to see him as merely a back-up to Jorginho, the Spaniard could move on.”

Looking at his age, it is quite certain that the Blues will not offer him a contract extension.

Apart from Atletico Madrid, Italian club, AC Milan are also interested in the Spanish midfielder.
