Chelsea have had a good start to the season, and the Blues will meet Bournemouth this weekend at Stamford Bridge.
Maurizio Sarri has spoken fondly of Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, and the Chelsea manager has revealed he has had a good relationship with the Cherries’ boss.
Sarri said: “Eddie came to Empoli three or four years ago for a few days, and then I had three days with him when Napoli played a friendly in Bournemouth last year.
“I know him very well. He is a very interesting young coach. He will make a mark in English football in the future.
“Bournemouth are very dangerous opponents for us. They are well organised, they are dangerous in counter-attacks, so the match will be very difficult for us, but we want to be in control of the match, and try to gain points.”
