Chelsea are enjoying a bright start to the 2018-19 season as they have gone nine games without a defeat.
The Blues changed their manager in the summer when Maurizio Sarri replaced his compatriot Antonio Conte, who didn’t have a cordial relationship with Roman Abramovic throughout the last campaign.
Since taken over from the former Juventus manager earlier in the year, Sarri has brought new atmosphere, new tactics into the team and players are loving what they’ve seen so far.
While revealing the secret behind their perfect start to life under Sarri, one of Chelsea’s oldest defender David Luiz told reporters that they are happy with the manager’s tactics and philosophy.
The Brazilian told Chelsea TV that there is peace and harmony in the dressing room and that makes everyone one feel comfortable and happy to play for Sarri.
He said Sarri has brought great excitement and happiness to the whole squad and teammates are eager to show their quality on the field of play when given the opportunity.
“Sarri is giving us a lot of happiness to play football. We are trying to enjoy. He (Sarri) gives us a lot of confidence. He shows us what he wants.” Luiz told Chelsea TV
Last season under Conte, David Luiz was a fringe part of the team, giving rise to reports that claimed Mourinho is looking to reunite with the player at Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.
However, Mourinho failed in his move for the no-nonsense defender as Chelsea decided to retain him beyond this season.
