Chelsea star makes big claim about manager Sarri

GETTY    
   Luiz has found himself back in the Chelsea first-team under Sarri

David Luiz believes Maurizio Sarri's attitude to life, coupled with his footballing philosophy, has helped the Italian make an impressive start at Chelsea.

After finishing out of the Champions League places last season under former boss Antonio Conte, Sarri was brought in to restore Chelsea FC in Europe's elite.

"First of all, he's a great person, great as a human being".

Darke concedes the fact that a title charge may be out of the question considering the long continental trips Chelsea have been assigned in their Europa League group but is, however, more adamant that, "Sarri's big achievement already has been to put his team into the conversation".

Luiz said: "He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent".

"So, I believe in this philosophy, and then after that he is a great coach".

Chelsea star is ready to commit his future to the club as he wants a five-year contract at the Stamford Bridge, according to report.

The defender has become accustomed to the expectations that come with playing for a club like Chelsea - but he insists the pressure of having to perform every time you step on the pitch is not necessarily a bad thing.

While dethroning champions Manchester City might be a tough ask, Makelele - a two-time Premier League victor with the Blues - is expecting big things from Sarri.

Speaking to Chelsea's official website, the 30-year-old has admitted that he's always been one to plan ahead and says he'd love to spend another five years in London. "I have won titles and played a lot of games with a lot of happy moments, and a few sad moments as well but that is part of football, but these five years have been very good for me and I am proud to be a Chelsea player".

Sarri's side have taken maximum points in the league this season and have exceeded many people's expectations after Chelsea FC's abject campaign last season.
