Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed he “spoke about everything” with Eden Hazard, but refused to reveal if the Belgian star will be handed the club’s armband for the upcoming season.
Speaking at a press conference, the Italian boss said: “I don’t see this problem in this moment. I have spoken with him in the last two or three days, we have spoken about everything. The Hazard problem is not a problem”.
About Kante, Giroud, Batshuayi, Cahill and Eden Hazard: “They only returned the day before yesterday. It was better to give them 25 minutes. They have to work obviously, but I am very happy. I can work with all my players tomorrow, the next match will very important”.
When asked if Eden Hazard will be Chelsea captain next season, Sarri responded: “I want to speak with all the players, with my staff and club and at the end I will decide. Today is my first day with all the players. I have to decide when I know better every player”.
“I think that we have to work. But we started to work two days ago. I think potentially we can become in two three months a very good team”.
