Sarri: Higuain keen to prove himself again

09 February 2019

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

Chelsea are involved in a three-way dogfight - with Arsenal and a resurgent Manchester United - for the fourth and final Champions League spot.

"We are still learning about his concept".

"I've only played two games with Higuain and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger".

The Belgium global recently stated that he has made up his mind about where he will be playing next season, but he refused to say where. "It is very interesting when you can listen to Arrigo speaking about football".

In the Premier League this term, Hazard has struck 12 times already, but his impressive 10 assists please him just as much.

"I'm not at all selfish", he said. He can play a really good season, in the last part of the season.

Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has bid his departed Nantes attacking partner Emiliano Sala . Once that was done, a body was discovered inside the wreckage, and then duly retrieved.

"Mentally, I think that we're the same".

"I will be really very happy with him if he wants to stay, because he is the best in Europe, so I will be really very happy". But I will try.

"Sometimes we keep possession, and I understand the fans want us to go forward, but it is part of the football".

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

Kante has arguably been the most influential signing made by Chelsea since Eden Hazard, having arrived from Leicester City a Premier League victor in the summer of 2016. Like the man who revolutionised AC Milan in the 1990s, Sarri didn't come from a professional football background and spent much of his life as an global banker.

The manager also went on to praise the strength of character of his new No.9, noting how he bounced back from hard misses prior to his record-breaking season with Napoli. "We are all together, and the world should do the same".
