Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink backs Maurizio Sarri's possession-style football at Chelsea

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink backs Maurizio Sarri's possession-style football at Chelsea”

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard hints that he may be tempted into remaining at Stamford Bridge by revealing that he likes to play football in the same way as Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea want Eden Hazard to sign a new contract.

Higuain forged a close bond with Sarri during their historic campaign together at Napoli and subsequently described the Italian as "a bit like a father" to him.

"At the moment, he is really very keen".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri deserves time and trust from the club to iron out flaws in his possession-based playing style and make the club consistent again, former striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has said.

"I hope that I am the football father [of Higuain]", Sarri told reporters.

The Blues boss is encouraged by the relationship developing between Eden Hazard and Higuain.

Hazard and Higuain both scored two goals each in Chelsea's 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town last weekend.

Hazard this week admitted to having made a decision on his future, with his Chelsea contract expiring in June 2020 and amid repeated links with a £100million summer move to Real Madrid.

"I will be really very happy with him if he wants to stay because in my opinion he is the best in Europe". He arrived very motivated, and I think he will be very useful for us.

Higuain toiled on loan at AC Milan in the first half of the season, but the Argentina worldwide previously hit 36 Serie A goals in a season for Sarri's Napoli. "And so, he has to decide".

Paper Round's view: Sarri is very possibly on his way out at Chelsea with Champions League football hanging in the balance after a poor couple of months in charge. Like the man who revolutionised AC Milan in the 1990s, Sarri didn't come from a professional football background and spent much of his life as an global banker.
