Gonzalo Higuain reveals the real reason why he joined Chelsea this January

Gonzalo Higuain reveals the real reason why he joined Chelsea this January

Kante has been moved further forward to accommodate summer signing Jorginho while Hazard was playing as a No 9 before Gonzalo Higuain's arrival.

"But he reacted really very well, he was very keen, he played an exceptional season".

Sarri has openly criticized his players for their lacklustre performances in recent weeks, claiming they are hard to motivate.

Eden Hazard said "I like to be "the star" but I like also when I can pass the ball to another for him to score and it is not just about me".

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.

Amid his highly-talked transfer speculation, Eden Hazard believes he and his Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has the same football wavelength.

'I hope that I am the football father.

Hazard's future is a hot topic again after announcing he'd already made a decision about his future. "He's an old man [60, meaning experienced] but the way he thinks is the same way I think about football". I don't know the mother of Gonzalo!' "But Higuain is a fantastic striker".

Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus clearly have more pedigree than Hazard, but Sarri may have been talking about the Belgian in the context of his position on the left wing.

"In football, you can be at the top but in three months you can be nothing", said Hazard, who has three younger bothers, all footballers.

City lead the table on goal difference from Liverpool, with both sides 12 points clear of Chelsea entering this weekend's fixtures. "No more, I think".

"We are still learning about his concept". They speak the same language with the ball, and so I think Gonzalo will be very important for us for this.
