Chelsea’s manager Maurizio Sarri is ready for tonight’s Europa League final vs Arsenal at Baku.

The Italian coach, during his pre-game press conference gave an update on the injuries’ situation for the Blues: “We are in trouble with the midfielders. We have only three midfielders for three positions. We are in trouble. N’Golo is very important. He is the only defensive midfielder that we have. We will try to recover him. N’Golo for us, it is a problem”. Sarri explained. “He had a little problem in his knee on Saturday. We are trying. It is not serious but it is the problem of three or four days. We will try, but right now we don’t know. 50/50, yesterday 60/40 for no, but now 50/50. He was a little better this morning”.

Today Sarri can win the first trophy in professional football, but he still doesn’t consider this the most important night in his career: “I don’t know. Because the feeling between coach and media is different. For media this is the most important of my life, for me maybe not”. the Italian claimed. “Maybe for me more important was a match in Serie B in Italy. I don’t know. Tomorrow I might be able to tell you my feelings. Not at the moment.”

Finally, Sarri gave also a message to all Chelsea fans especially those who couldn’t travel to Baku: “I don’t know what to say about the problems. You have to ask UEFA and the clubs. I am very disappointed. We do this job for this kind of match. We want our fans here. We will try to win for us and also for them”.

Speaking with French radio station RTLChelsea‘s striker Olivier Giroud admitted he is not happy about how things are going for him at Stamford Bridge.

Giroud started just one of the Blues’ last 16 Premier League games: “Of course it is frustrating. Today, I feel like there is no competition since January”. Giroud said. “It is like that, I know that I will only play in the Europa League and I will try to do everything I can to be as effective and decisive as possible for the team.”

Then, at the end of the season, Chelsea’s striker can decide to leave both the club and England: “The future could be hectic this summer,” Giroud went on. “I am not scared of going down a level to have more playing time. It could be that I end my career in France.”

Few days ago, in an interview with France FootballChelsea star Eden Hazard has admitted he has frustrated many managers in his career, including Maurizio Sarri.

Today, speaking during his pre-game press conference the Italian explained it’s true he is not completely happy with the Belgian talent:  “Sometimes. I prefer him when he speaks with his feet”. Sarri claimed. “I think he said that coaches told him that he needs to do more. I think that he has to do more, because the potential is higher than the performances, I think. He has to respect, first of all, himself. He has to do more.”

Most of all, Maurizio Sarri has not been completely satisfied with Eden Hazard’s performances as a “false nine”: “You know very well that Eden is at the moment a wonderful player, but he’s an individual player. He’s a very instinctive player. For him it’s very difficult to play only in one position. He likes very much to go to the ball”. the Italian manager explained. “He wants the ball on the feet. So for him I think it’s very difficult to play as a striker, but it’s very difficult to play also as a winger. We have to organise the other 10 players in the defensive phase.”

While Chelsea‘s fans are waiting for the signing of Gonzalo Higuain and Alvaro Morata’s move to Atletico Madrid, once again Eden Hazard hasn’t ruled out the chance of a future with Real Madrid.

When asked by France Football about his move to the current champions of Europe, the Blues’ star claimed:

Why not? I’ve seen all there is to see”. Hazard explained. “I‘ve won everything here: the two cups, the league, apart from the Community Shield, but that doesn’t mean I am going to leave. I have always said that, after England, I wanted to discover something else. But there are things that could make me stay too. I’m not far off the peak of my career, that’s sure. Even if things can always be better, that’s for sure too. I am at a crossroads, yes. We are going to take the right turn.”

Mateo Kovacic is enjoying his stay at Chelsea and not only he said that coming to London has been a very good choice, but he also claims he would also like to play with the Blues, longer then his season-long loan.

“I think it was the most important thing I did for now in my career”. the midfielder told Sky Sports when asked about his move during the last summer transfer window. “It was a step I wanted a lot, I wanted to come here. I say thank you to my previous club, to Chelsea as well, who wanted me a lot. I am enjoying it and I like it a lot here. “For now, I am happy here. The city is amazing, the club is one of the best in the world, and my team-mates are great. I need to respect my previous club, Real Madrid. I can imagine myself staying here, but I have a contract I need to respect, and that is what I will do”.

If Mateo Kovacic would like a permanent move from Real Madrid to Chelsea, the Spanish giants, on the other hand, want to sign Eden Hazard:

For me, he is an incredible player,” Kovacic explained. “I did not know he was that good and he can easily be one of the two or three best players in the world. He asked me how it was there (at Real) but we are looking forward to having a great season together, to be fully concentrated on Chelsea. He is focused a lot on doing great things with Chelsea.”
