‘Sarri Gives Us Confidence’ Purrs David Luiz
Chelsea defender David Luiz says he and his Blues teammates are enjoying life under Italian coach Maurizio Sarri. The Brazilian believes Sarri has rekindled the team’s joy for football.
Luiz fell out with previous manager Antonio Conte and fell out of favour, but Sarri has reintroduced him into the heart of the defence.
“Sarri is giving us a lot of happiness to play football. We are trying to enjoy,” Luiz told Chelsea TV. “He gives us a lot of confidence. He shows us what he wants. He gives us the details about the game.
“He works hard in every situation. And also as a human he’s a fantastic person. Every single day he says to us ‘you have the best job in the world, so you have to enjoy’.
“You have to try to do this with a big smile. Many people in the world don’t have this privilege.” Luiz also said his side were satisfied with the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday.
“We’re not going to win the title in this (game, against Liverpool). We tried to do our best to win the game and we continue to work hard every day. The season is long, it’s just the beginning. Let’s continue to play.”
