New Blues boss coy over futures of Hazard & Courtois

New Blues boss coy over futures of Hazard & Courtois

Maurizio Sarri wants to meet Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois for face-to-face talks in order to convince them their futures lie with Chelsea.

"Honestly I hope I will be able to fill in this gap with the club, the difference between doing well and winning".

"It has been very fruitful for him, changes are afoot at Chelsea, Sarri is a very good coach and plays attacking football".

Sarri went on to suggest a strong willingness to work with the players already at his disposal at Stamford Bridge.

"I think that I am one of few managers who is bored by [the] transfer market".

They did manage to end Antonio Conte's second campaign in charge at the club on a positive note by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in May.

"I never want to make these kind of distinctions - I don't want to discuss nationality".

The translator initially said Sarri had felt his centre-halves were the weakest area, though Chelsea have since clarified that his comments were mistranslated and he meant central midfield. He is an extraordinary manager.

Hazard opened the door for speculation on his future to swing wide open after the World Cup too when he said that "it might be time to discover something different". "We want to reach high-level objectives, but first we must have fun".

"It could be the best time [for Hazard] to try something different".

Antonio Conte won't be too hurt by the Football Association's reposting of a tweet which disrespected him.

In 2016, Sarri was accused by then-Inter coach Roberto Mancini of using a gay slur in 2016 during a heated Coppa Italia semifinal, and in March responded in a news conference to a question by a female journalist about Napoli's title chances by saying: "You're a woman, you're lovely, and I won't tell you to [expletive] off for those two reasons".

ESPN correspondent Liam Twomey asked a further question comparing Hazard with Dries Mertens, who developed under Sarri at Napoli.
