Maurizio Sarri was appointed as Chelsea manager last month as the Blues let go Antonio Conte for yet another Italian.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is hoping that the signing of Sarri will be a plus for him, having struggled for the Blues last season.

Despite misfiring during pre-season – and notably missing a penalty against Arsenal – Morata will lead the line for Chelsea next season and hopes he can score a lot of goals in the Sarri-ball system.

The 25-year-old also revealed that his father believes he’ll do well under Sarri.

“My father, when Sarri was announced as manager, said to me, ‘All the strikers with Sarri score a lot of goals, so don’t worry. This will be your year.’

“Now it’s time to be an important player. To score a lot to goals. To help the team to get trophies and to give back all the things that Chelsea put on me — confidence. Their will to make me a top player. I want to give back this confidence.”
