Sarri drops Hazard bomb

In a press conference, Sarri essentially told the press that Eden Hazard will not continue on in Chelsea next year. He has practically given up.

"Two finals and the Champions will not help him stay," said Maurizio Sarri at a the pre-match press conference before Chelsea's clash against Leicester.

Sarri pointed to Hazard's "motivation" as a reason that complicates his continuity in Stamford Bridge. Are two finals, EFL Cup and Europa League, and the pass of the Champions League reasons to follow?

"I don't know. If Hazard is thinking his story here is over, then in his mind it's over. I can try to talk to him but it's not easy. It's not easy because, of course, I want Hazard, but I want Hazard with a very high level of motivation," he said.

Sarri made it clear that Chelsea's planning is not in his hands. "You know they have to ask the club because I don't have control of the market. I'm not in charge of renewing the contract, so I can't answer. I can only talk to the player, but as a parent, not as a coach. If I talk to him I won't say anything. It's a discussion between a father and a son," said the 'blue' coach.
