Sarri’s response to Hazard saying he has made decision on his future

Sarri’s response to Hazard saying he has made decision on his future

'I accept it, ' Hazard told the Times. To that end, keeping the best goalkeeper in the world is essential. Though Chelsea succeeded before Hazard, and will go on to win plenty in the years post his departure, he's one of the top five players on the planet, and it's been a pleasure to see him in action in SW6 over the past six-and-a-half-years.

'Maybe they think I can, but I know myself and I don't think I can.

"I like to be 'the star" but I like also when I can pass the ball to another for him to score, and it is not just about me.

And the 60-year-old Blues boss says the 31-year-old striker is keen to respond from a disappointing loan spell at AC Milan earlier this season.

The former Lille forward has been paramount to the club's success in recent years, winning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and the Europa League.

Hazard has a £350,000-a-week contract sitting on the table to be signed from Chelsea but his hesitance does not fill the club with confidence.

Maurizio Sarri explains how Chelsea can beat Manchester City on Sunday
Chelsea go into the game at the Etihad knowing that if they win, they will be nine points behind City, with a game in hand. A little change of scenery again.

Higuain and Hazard played together for the first time in a awful 4-0 loss to Bournemouth. "I like this kind of football". But they linked up to good effect last weekend when Chelsea thrashed Huddersfield 5-0 in what was arguably the team's best performance since Sarri took charge last summer.

"When we have the ball, we have a lot of freedom, not just me but the striker and the right [attacker], Willian or Pedro, so we can move a lot".

"If he said that, I think it's because he's going to extend his contract with Chelsea". Sarri is a great manager.

Asked why he connects so well with Higuain, Chelsea's head coach replied: "Mentally I think it was the same, but I think that Gonzalo is very suitable for my football, so the feeling is really fantastic".

Sarri's men will make the daunting trip to defending champions Manchester City in their next Premier League game on Sunday afternoon.
