Chelsea don’t have space for Danny Drinkwater – Sarri

Published

on

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has made it clear that he has no place in his team for Danny Drinkwater.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday ahead of their Europa League quarter-final at Slavia Prague, Sarri explained that Drinkwater has been excluded from the team because he is “not adaptable” and does not suit his philosophies.

Drinkwater has yet to play under the Italian boss, who took charge of Chelsea for the 2018/2019 season.

The midfielder featured 22 times last season after joining from Leicester for a fee of £35million in September 2017.

“He knows very well, he has never played because in my opinion he is not suited to my system and my way of playing.

“I told him everything in August, he appreciated but decided to remain and so he knew very well the situation.

“He’s not adaptable, that is my opinion. My opinion is important for me. Kante can play with two midfielders because he is a world champion. With the three he is better on the centre right or left because I want a technical player.

“Jorginho against Brighton played 161 balls, for our way of football it’s important to have a centre midfielder that is technical and fast with the mind.

“Kante is wonderful for something different but not playing one touch,” Sarri said.

Published

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, has been named in the PFA Team of the Year.

Pogba was the only non-Liverpool or Manchester City player to make the PFA Team of the Year.

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard misses out in a side which is dominated by Liverpool and Manchester City players.

The team is set to be revealed on Thursday and is voted for by players in the Premier League.

Four Liverpool players have made the cut, including Virgil van Dijk, who has won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year ahead of Raheem Sterling.

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been named in the PFA Team of the Year for the second successive season, while Bernardo Silva is also included after his brilliant season for the Premier League champions.

Hazard misses out for the second year running, despite being on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year.

Hazard to earn £400,000 weekly in Real Madrid

Eden Hazard will be offered £400,000-a-week to join Real Madrid this summer and a new house, the UK Sun reports.

The Belgian superstar is ready to quit Chelsea and has his heart set on a move to Spain.

Zinedine Zidane is back in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu and is planning to overhaul his squad after this season.

Hazard is top of his wish list and Zidane is also said to want Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

For Hazard, Madrid will sweeten the deal, by throwing in a luxury property and help with his relocation costs.

Chelsea won’t stand in the player’s way, but expect the LaLiga giants to get near their £95million valuation, even though Hazard’s contract expires in summer 2020.

Why Chelsea was unable to defeat Burnley – David Luiz

Published

By

Chelsea’s central defender, David Luiz has explained why his side drew 2-2 with Burnley on Monday night.

Luiz said Burnley refused to play the game and adopted time wasting techniques.

Mourizio Sarri’s men missed the chance to go to third position in the Premier League on Monday.

Jeff Hendrick had given the visitors a shock lead with a sensational volley from outside the area.

But N’Golo Kante scored an almost instant equaliser after good work from Eden Hazard on the left.

Gonzalo Higuain then put Chelsea into the lead with a well-taken strike from the angle, but Ashley Barnes stunned the home fans after sliding the Clarets level after a well-worked set piece.

Chelsea pushed hard for a late winner, but Sean Dyche’s side were well organised and defended their box masterfully to take a point which surely guarantees their safety from relegation.

Luiz told Sky Sports, “We tried everything to win the game. It’s difficult when you play against a team who have two chances and score two goals and didn’t want to play the game.

“It’s anti-football. Losing time [time wasting] all the time, especially when you have the ball. Their players went to the floor and stopped the game.

“They were playing 11 inside the box. It’s difficult to score against a team like that.”
