Why I am happy to have worked with Sarri at Napoli, Dries Mertens

Napoli striker Dries Mertens is one of those players who have missed current Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri at the club.

Sarri left the Italian club to the Stamford Bridge at the summer and was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti.

Ancelotti has been praised by the club for doing a good job especially after he helped defeat inform-Liverpool by a lone goal in the Champions League game this season.

However, Sarri still remains in the heart of the players and is obviously being missed no wonder striker Dries Mertens could not hide it in his words when asked whom he prefers working with between the former and the present managers.

Mertens declined from saying he preferred one to another but the question was already answered from his lines when he said he “had fun” under Sarri.

He added that Sarri’s style of football was “practically written on me” because he had liked, enjoyed and embraced it.

The Napoli striker was quick to say that his comment has nothing to do with the current manager whom he said he gets along with as his manager.

Meanwhile, Mertens said he is happy at Napoli and has not considered any offer from any club, noting he has a contract until June 2020.
