Maurizio Sarri has thrown in the towel claiming that even Europa success might not be enough to keep Hazard at Chelsea.
“I don’t know, I don’t know. If Hazard is thinking that the history here is finished, then in his mind it is finished,” Sarri told a news conference.
“I can try to speak to him, but it is not easy. It’s not easy because of course I want Hazard, but I want Hazard with a very high level of motivation.”
“As you know you have to ask the club because I am not in control of the market. I am not in charge of the renewal of the contract, so I am not able to answer,” Sarri said.
“I can only speak to the player but like a father, not like a manager. Also, if I speak to him, I will not tell you anything, it’s a discussion between a father and a son.”
Asked if he believed his first season at Stamford Bridge had been a success, Sarri replied: “I think that the season is really very good, because we got to two finals, we finish in the top four, so the season is really very good.”
“Of course, in a final you need to be lucky. It is more important to arrive in the final, but now we want to win and if we are able to win a trophy after the top four then I think we can finish the season in a very strong way.”
“So, we are able to do it and I think now we deserve, as a group, to win a trophy.”
