Maurizio Sarri departed Chelsea after just one season in charge of the English side, and he has since suggested that star player Eden Hazard was one of the problems during his time in charge.

Speaking at his unveiling in Turin, as reported by the Mirror, Sarri reflected on his time in London.

Sarri went on to say that although talismanic figure Eden Hazard could change the game, his presence on the pitch made it harder to defend and caused the football to be less fluid.

“We had to accommodate Eden Hazard’s characteristics. He could change the game, but also his presence caused issues in defending that we had to work on.”

Emerson unsure if Sarri will join Juventus

Emerson unsure if Sarri will join Juventus Chelsea left-back Emerson says that he is unsure as to whether or not Maurizio Sarri will be joining Juventus this summer. Sarri has been heavily linked with a move to Italian giants Juventus, which would leave Chelsea managerless and in the midst of a two-window transfer ban imposed upon them by FIFA. Emerson joined Chelsea from Roma in January 2018 but has only made 15 Premier League appearances for the club to date. He did, however, play 11 times in the Europa League as he won the first major trophy of his senior career.

Sarri touches down in Turin ahead of Juventus unveiling as he's given guided tour by club legend Nedved. Napoli fans have been left so upset at the news that former boss Maurizio Sarri has taken over at Juventus that they have ripped down a plaque dedicated to him.

Juventus are chasing both Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot and want an all-French central midfield partnership next season. Midfielder has been linked with Real Madrid but Juventus have entered race. Maurizio Sarri wants Frenchman to combine with compatriot Adrien Rabiot.

Both Sarri and Hazard have now departed for Juventus and Real Madrid respectively and the Italian admits he will have to face up to new challenges back in his native country.

The Italian admitted it was harder to implement his ‘Sarri-ball’ at Chelsea than at previous clubs Napoli and Empoli as the players didn’t really fit the system.

“I arrive at Juventus from Chelsea and the step might spark less scepticism, but I do come from a history and so I expect some rancour.”

The Blues now have the task of putting a new manager in place, which is expected to be Frank Lampard and building on the recent success in the Europa League.
