Sarri failed with transfer once again?0
London Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is not satisfied with preparation of new forward of his team Gonzalo Higuain. The Italian claims that the forward needs to improve his physical shape in the nearest weeks.
Gonzalo Higuain came to Chelsea to save the team from disheartening results in the league. The Blues have advanced to the League Cup final, where they will play against Manchester City, passed Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup, but the things aren’t going to well in the league.
Morata unsuccessfully played on the edge of Sarri’s team, because of which the manager put Eden Hazard there, hoping that the Belgian winger will fix the situation. However, as the practice shows, it is better for Hazard to play from the deep, developing attacks. Therefore, Sarri called his old acquaintance in Napoli, Higuain.
After the arrival to Chelsea, Higuain took part in two matches, against Sheffield, where he refused to shoot a penalty because of uncertainty. And in the second match against Bournemouth Chelsea were crushed 4:0.
Sarri explained the forward’s bleak game after the matches,
“He can improve a lot of things. Higuain is not in his best shape at the moment. Probably, because of the fact that he didn’t play much lately, distracting on the transfer market and back pain.”
However, was Higuain necessary for Sarri is a rhetorical question. Chelsea turned to transfers of aging forwards, who did not spoil the picture. Amongst them were Samuel Eto’O, as well as returned to Stamford Bridge Didier Drogba. But recently neither Olivier Giroud, nor Falcao played well. Even in Serie A Higuain was not even close to goalscorers race leaders; therefore, one should not expect achievements in the new country from him.
After the miserable defeat to Bournemouth, Sarri claimed that he is not capable of motivating Chelsea players. That is the first sign that the Italian may not work until the end of the season, not mentioning the end of contact. Chelsea have already descended to the fifth place, having let Arsenal pass through, which may be losing, but do not stop playing football until the final whistle.
