Maurizio Sarri: “The match is very important”

by -

Even if Chelsea defeated Dinamo Kiev 3-0 one week ago at Stamford Bridge, the Blues manager Maurizio Sarri doesn’t want to underestimate tonight’s opponent in Europa League last 16’s second leg.

I want to send to my team the message that the match is very important. I don’t want to make a mistake in this”. the Italian explained in his pre-game press conference.

Then, Sarri himself gave an irritated response when asked if Callum Hudson-Odoi will be in the Starting XI: Why not (Ethan) Ampadu? Tell me the difference,” Sarri said. “I have a lot of players of course. I know very well that for you (the media) Odoi is the best, but for me I want to see them all at the same level. Odoi is doing very well in the last period. He will be for sure in the 18 – maybe on the pitch, I don’t know. As you know, in the last match Odoi was the first change. So you know very well that Odoi is on my mind for every match.”
