Luiz tells Chelsea to keep Sarri and Blues fans told Lampard will be manager
David Luiz has urged Chelsea to keep hold of Maurizio Sarri this summer, amid Juventus speculation.
Sarri was appointed last summer to get us back inside the top four and playing Champions League football, and he achieved that by claiming third in the Premier League.
But he went and done one better by securing a Europa League win against London rivals Arsenal after a impressive display from his players earned a 4-1 victory.
Asked whether the club should keep Sarri, Luiz replied on the Metro: ‘Yes. He’s doing great. He did great during the season even with all the difficulties we had.
‘It’s his first season at Chelsea, his first in English football. He is a great person, a great guy, a great manager and we finished in the best way for him because we finished winning a trophy in his way.
‘Even after we conceded a goal at 3-1 we continued to play his philosophy and continued to try to score more goals. It was the best end of the season for him and he deserved that.
‘It is for the club to decide, but I am so happy with him. Sometimes we are with the guys we work with more than our families. We make some connections. I think Maurizio did that with us. He has some connections with us, that’s why he loves this group.’
Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp has claimed that Frank Lampard will manage the at some point.
Despite the fact that Sarri managed to get us back inside the top three spots in the Premier League and also reach two finals, becoming European Champions on Wednesday, there is much talk that we will look to axe the Italian if he fails to achieve a trophy this season.
And Redknapp believes his nephew Lampard will eventually become manager.
Redknapp said on the Daily Express: “When Frank comes to Chelsea I will be there every weekend.
“He is going to go at some stage no doubt.
“His dad was incredible in training and Frank was the same. Every day he’d be out on the training ground.
“He couldn’t run, he wasn’t fast. He wasn’t an athlete. He practised he practised he practised. When he scored those free-kicks it wasn’t luck.”
