Chelsea‘s assistant coach and Blues legend Gianfranco Zola has revealed how things are going under Maurizio Sarri saying the Italian manager works very hard on every aspect of the game.
“It’s a lot, the level of details that he puts. He really doesn’t leave anything by chance,” Zola told Soccer AM. “So when the players go out on the pitch the players know everything about what they have to do and that’s a big help.He’s obsessed with knowing everything about the opposition and then going to the pitch to prepare everything. He knows player by player. All the key players of the opposition, how they defend, how they attack and so therefore doing everything to stop them from playing and playing around them, there is a lot of work”.
Not only Sarri works a lot, but he wants his assistants to do the same: “I can not stop”, Zola went on. “I am watching more games in the last two months than in the last five years”.
