New Boss Maurizio Sarri Not Happy With Willian

New Boss Maurizio Sarri Not Happy With Willian

He said: "I don't know if he is not confident".

Willian is one of several Chelsea players linked with a summer move to Spain with Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard both targets for Real Madrid.

Willian was on an extended post-World Cup break, and it was reportedly an expired passport that kept him from re-joining the team, a situation that Sarri described as "strange".

When asked about his player reporting late to training in an interview after the penalty shootout loss to Arsenal, Sarri stated, "I want to speak to him before I answer these questions".

After the winger's exertions at the World Cup in Brazil, who lost to Belgium in the quarterfinal stage last July 6, Sarri scheduled a return date for him last Friday.

Off-spinner Ashwin, belying his reputation as a poor performer outside the sub-continent, took four for 62 in 26 overs. Pandya did get out eventually, as Curran came back to trap him lbw with a toe-crushing yorker.

Anxious about their options, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has told Batshuayi that he can not leave until a new hitman is brought in, according to Belgian daily Het Nieuwsblad. "Not at this moment, no, because I will see them on Saturday for the first time".

For his part, Sarri said it would be "very exciting" to come up against Mourinho, while managing Napoli. "Every club wants to keep their top players and we are trying to do it".

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri defended Alvaro Morata after their 1-1 draw with Arsenal in Dublin. "He will stay with us [in the first team] for the season".

Willian trained alone at Cobham on Wednesday afternoon and is expected to be available for Chelsea's clash with Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, though he is unlikely to start.
