#4 Sarri asks Hazard to leave
Eden Hazard and Maurizio Sarri might not be sharing the best of relationships. In fact, it has now gotten to the point where the Italian has actually asked the player to leave if he so desires.
Hazard has been vocal about his dream to play for Real Madrid and while Sarri did ask him to leave, he also added that he hopes the Belgian stays and improves at Stamford Bridge.
"Eden is 28 so, if he wants to go, I think he has to go. I hope the opposite. I hope he wants to stay and improve,” Sarri said.
He then went on to suggest that Hazard has not reached his full potential yet and his comments in the press are just a way to motivate the Belgian captain.
“He has the potential to be the best player in Europe and, sometimes, he's happy with something less. “
“It's my job to improve him and put him in a position to do his best. Sometimes that means I have to say something [critical] in the press to do that. It's normal. It's my job."Published 30 Jan 2019, 20:45 IST
