Chelsea midfielder Kovacic: Sarri management as you would expectby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic says he appreciates the management of Maurizio Sarri.The Croatia international is on-loan at Chelsea from Real Madrid this season.He said of Sarri: “He likes us to have possession of the ball to play and that is what we are trying to do. I think we play good football, we are playing forward and that is the most important, we are scoring goals, we do not concede so much so we are a good team but the coach is six months here so we have a lot to improve and I am sure this team can do great things.”He [Sarri] is like he should be. When he needs to be relaxed he is relaxed and when he needs to be tough and sometimes also angry, he is. He knows what to do and he knows his job and it is really great to have him with us. We train good, we are playing good football but it always can be better and I am sure it will be.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
