Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has described Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho as one of the best coaches in the world, ahead his side’s Premier League fixture against the Red Devils on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, uniquesports.com.ng reports.
The Italian also called for respect for Mourinho, adding that the Portuguese gaffer has won everything there is to win in football.
Sarri, however, said that Mourinho’s team has the best player-by-player in the Premier League.
“We are talking about a coach [Mourinho] that has won everything, everywhere, so I think you all have to respect him,” Sarri was quoted by Metro UK as saying at Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“I think he is a very good coach, a very good manager and one of the best in the world.
“I don’t know about the problem with Antonio, on the pitch you can be a little nervous and tense, you can say everything in that moment. I think Conte respects Mourinho and visa versa.”
Sarri added, “I think they are a very strong team. Maybe player-by-player, they are the best team in the league.
“At the moment City is more of a team, but player-by-player they are very, very strong.
“We are talking only about eight matches, they are doing well in the Champions League so they can improve in the Premier League, we are talking about two months.”
The kick-off time for the match is 12:30pm.
Europa League: Hazard, Kante, 4 others will miss next match
Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, has provided update on his team ahead of their Europa League clash with MOL Vidi on Thursday.
Sarri said Victor Moses, Cahill, Kovacic will not be in the squad due to injury.
He also said that goalkeeper Kepa, Rudigar, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard will be rested.
Sarri said this in a prematch press conference on Wednesday evening ahead of the game.
He said, “The last match was really very difficult, because they defended very well, very low in density. It was very difficult for us to score.
“Maybe tomorrow will be a very different match because they are fighting for qualification.
“I think they need to win tomorrow. So maybe the match will be really very different.
“I don’t know the starting XI for tomorrow. I can tell you that I decided that the players who played for three matches in six days in the last week have to rest in this match and so I am talking about Kepa, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard.
“Then we have three injuries. Kovacic, Cahill and Moses. All the other players are here, of course.”
Suarez to replace Fabregas at Chelsea
AC Milan are keen to sign Fabregas in January and the Blues have looked at Barca’s disgruntled Suarez.
Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri does not want the 31-year-old to go, but the Spaniard wants more football than he is getting at the moment.
Sarri has told the club’s board that he does not want Fabregas to go until a direct replacement has been sorted out as he is his only true cover for Jorginho.
However, Fabregas has made only four Premier League appearances this season, starting only in the recent defeat away to Wolves.
Suarez wants to leave Barcelona after making only one substitute appearance in La Liga this season, and would cost around £15million.
The Blues value Fabregas at around £11m.
