Exclusive! Sarri admits that he wants to win this number of titles this season


Maurizio Sarri stated it clearly that he wants to win all competitions this season and the Europa League is included in his list. Albeit, the blues are in the same point with Liverpool but the fans are still tentative about the current manager’s ambition.

To say the least, The 59-year-old manager is yet to win a major trophy in his managerial career but Chelsea is never shot of adapting quickly and winning at least one cup for new managers.

The Blues found themselves in a different version that they’ve never had to play for decades but adapting quickly is part of the clubs tradition.

Questions will be asked for sure when other cup competitions start but all that will be required is patience, patience and patience as they continue to play a new attacking and possessive football.

The Blues were drawn in group L in the Europa league and they look more likely to finish first. The 2012 winners may take similar advantage as they did under Benitez when they cruised to the final to defeat Benfica.

Sarri’s men have shown that they can compete this season: the club that was comfortable without the ball under Conte now makes their oppositions turmoil when without the ball. Sarri’s ambition has not fully started has he admits that he has not chosen his captain to lead them to victory.

Azpilicueta is the assistant captain while Tim Cahill who was the captain under Antonio Conte is far below Sarri’s pecking order. Eden Hazard who captained Belgium in the World Cup is another likely option but it is left for Sarri to decide:

“Nothing decided at the moment, I want to decide during the international break for the final one,” said Sarri.

The fans will be very glad to see their new captain after the international break and perhaps lead them to the 59-year-old manager’s first major trophy.
