During his pre-match press conference, Chelsea’s manager Maurizio Sarri reacted to N’Golo Kante contract extension with the London club.
“N’Golo for us is not an important player, he is a determined player and I am very happy for him. It is very good news for us. I know that David said something about him, that he doesn’t want to pay the bill in the restaurant, but he is a very professional player on the pitch and off it”. Sarri explained. “He is very important defensively, but he can score more and he can improve in the final 25 metres of the pitch”.
Now, the Italian manager hopes also another Chelsea star, Eden Hazard, could sign a new contract with the Blues: “I don’t know the movement of the contract”. Sarri admitted. “He is doing very well, he played on Sunday so was with us on Tuesday. But I hope we can do [a new contract], I hope so”.
