Sarri Concerned Over Willian Absence
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he is concerned by Willian’s absence form pre-season training. The player was due to return on Monday following his exploits with Brazil in this summer’s World Cup.
After the penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal in Dublin for the International Champions Cup, Sarri admitted that he was a little concerned that Willian has yet to return. The player has cited passport issues.
The Brazilian is linked with a move to Manchester United, Barcelona or Real Madrid. Sarri said, “I want to speak to him before I answer these questions. I don't know. I am not happy about the situation but I would like to talk to him. Is it strange? I think so.”
Sarri is also facing speculation over the future of Belgian pair Thiboult Courtois and Eden Hazard, “I will see them on Saturday for the first time so I don't know the situation in this moment. We are talking about top players and I think every club wants to keep top players."
