Hazard asks for patience over Kante position change

And current boss Sarri even set the forward a goals target of 40 earlier in the season.

The Chelsea manager said: "Gonzalo is a great player". They are very suitable to play together. "But Higuain is a fantastic striker".

Sarri has had a mixed first season since arriving from Napoli, an abject 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth last month being perhaps the nadir.

"I hope I am the football father!"

Kante has arguably been the most influential signing made by Chelsea since Eden Hazard, having arrived from Leicester City a Premier League victor in the summer of 2016.

Hazard this week admitted to having made a decision on his future, with his Chelsea contract expiring in June 2020 and amid repeated links with a £100million summer move to Real Madrid.

"I speak everyday with Eden, but about his position on the pitch, not about that [transfers]", Sarri told the media, according to FourFourTwo.

"That season he really was the best striker in Europe". I think he is the father of our football, of Guardiola and my football. "So I want to answer whether the players need motivation for this game after the match!" "And so, he has to decide". Like the man who revolutionised AC Milan in the 1990s, Sarri didn't come from a professional football background and spent much of his life as an global banker.

"I'm not sure. Maybe they think I can, but I know myself and I don't think I can".

"Also when you see the Belgium squad we have a lot, of course, Belgian players but some from Congo like (Romelu) Lukaku, (Michy) Batshuayi and (Christian) Benteke".

"We are still learning about his concept".

We feel bad giving this sort of bullsh*t airtime, but as much as our responsibility is to report on the latest news at Chelsea football club, it is also important for us to drawn attention to complete nonsense so that the fanbase isn't fooled.
