Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri believes Eden Hazard “can score 40 goals” this campaign as he confirmed the Belgian star “is the best player in Europe” following his performances with the Blues in their convincing start to the season.
Sarri told journalists: “I thought he was one of the best players in Europe, but now I change my mind that he is the best. I think Hazard can improve more. I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the oppositions goal”
“I think he can do it, he can do it. I told him in the last two days because Eden only arrived two days ago after the international teams I prefer to give the players one day off. I have spoke to him in the last two days, I told him for me he can score 40 goals. But spend less energy away from the goal and play in the last 25 metres”.
