Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger says that he prefers Maurizio Sarri’s playing style to that of Antonio Conte. Maurizio Sarri’s attack-oriented game has benefited Chelsea so far.
They have won all their Premier League games till now and are second in the Premier League table.
Antonio Rudiger said, “I played for Roma in Italy so I knew the way the manager liked to play and it was something I favoured.
He wants us to press high compared to last season when everyone knows we sat back. Now it is different. We create a lot of chances and for me that’s very good. Mostly he likes the defenders to play the ball short and keep possession.
I have shown so far I can do it but I want to improve every day. He is a coach who is not happy, he is always saying you can do better, and that keeps you alive.
To be honest, I’m surprised how well we’ve done because players like Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante had big World Cups and came back late for training. They are in good shape and that’s impressive.
Chelsea’s next Premier League fixture is against Cardiff City on Saturday. After this match, they begin their Europa League campaign against PAOK on September 20.
