Sarri's take on Hazard's farewell to Chelsea

At the time when it has been revealed that Hazard will indeed be on his way out, Sarri has said he respects the players call.

“As you know, Hazard is a wonderful player, but you have to spend two or three months to understand him as a man,” Sarri told a news conference. “But when you are able to understand him as a man, he’s a wonderful man.”

“I knew. I knew that Eden wanted to leave, of course. But, as I said in every press conference, I wanted to respect his decision. And now I have to speak to my club.”

Asked about his own future, he said, “The season is finished one hour ago,” Sarri added. “Tomorrow, I will begin to speak with my club, with the owner, with a director, with Marina [Granovskaia]… I don’t know.”

“We need to speak like at any club at the end of the season. We need to know what the club can do for me, and what I can do better for the club. Also the club need to speak to me.

“Then, after a couple of days, I will decide. I have a contract so, at the moment, we are talking about nothing.

“You know very well that I love the Premier League, the level of the competition. I am lucky because I am in Chelsea, one of the best teams, one of the best clubs in the Premier League in the best championship in the world.

“So, at the moment, I am happy. But, of course, I want to know if the club are happy. If we can improve. That’s normal, I think. But I do a discussion with the owner, the president, the director after every season in every club, so I think it’s normal.”

Asked directly if he feels he deserves a second season at Stamford Bridge, Sarri said: “I think so, but it’s only my opinion. My opinion is not enough.”
