Maurizio Sarri Insists He Wants Misfiring Veteran Striker at Chelsea Next Season

Gonzalo Higuain

The Blues were 3-0 winners against Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night after Callum Hudson-Odoi impressed on his full Premier League debut.

Asked if he was concerned by a report in the Times this week revealing that Abramovich did not pay for an executive box at Stamford Bridge this year for the first time in a decade, Sarri said: "I don't think so". It's up to the players.

"He [Higuain] has to improve physically and mentally and also that he will be useful for us in the last part of the season".

Speaking at a media conference on Friday, Sarri also pointed to the example of former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who took time to settle at Anfield before becoming one of the Premier League's top players. Loftus-Cheek the same. "But now they are fresh, they are ready".

Just how much input Russian billionaire Abramovich is having at the club these days is hard to tell. Abramovich is understood not to have attended a Chelsea match since May 2018 after he was refused a United Kingdom investor visa. "Because Zola speaks English better than me, of course".

Mick Schumacher makes F1 testing debut with Ferrari
Schumacher said he found Ferrari's 2019 vehicle "incredible because of the power it has but it is also smooth to drive". The vehicle has more grip, the auto is less draggy on the straights, the engine is a big step better as well.

"Abramovich has some problems now but he is involved with the club, and with the team". "He is the owner, and so he is able to influence the technical staff, the club, the players, everything".

The Blues are due to find out the result of their appeal against a two-window ban next Thursday, although they will still have the opportunity to go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport if Federation Internationale de Football Association uphold their decision.

Yet Sarri is refusing to panic, declaring his existing squad good enough to survive and thrive any suspension.

West Ham United, on the other hand, are fighting to play in the Europa League next season and if they wish to overtake the likes of Wolves and Watford, Pellegrini will need to ensure an away win. We have a lot of young players who are really good and improving. If they are able to improve we will be a better team in the future.
