Chelsea defender David Luis has hailed Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea’s leader.
Luiz is impressed with Sarri’s impact at Chelsea since joining from Napoli over the summer. Chelsea are yet to lose a competitive game this season under Sarri.
“I think when you are a leader, you try to give that for the others. Sarri is our leader, he tries to show us what he wants to do and that’s it. We follow him. We just try to enjoy, to do our best and try to win some games. I think life is also about that,” Luiz said.
“If you are not happy about something then you have to change so this is the main thing you have to do every single day. It is one of the best jobs in the world. So we try to train hard every day, to train with discipline, to try to play with responsibility but also happiness.
“Of course, he has his philosophy and he tries to show us every single day. We try to improve ourselves and the team. We are trying to do it. The results are coming because we are working hard every single day. I am so happy also because he is a great human.
“He knows how to teach us, how to improve us, when he is like that then it is easy to understand him and to try to be fantastic inside the pitch. I think I had the opportunity to play in many fantastic squads and I won with a great teams and lost in great teams. I think this team is trying to improve every day.
“The manager has been here for three or four months now. He is trying to improve our style of football and philosophy. The Premier League is not easy. It is just the beginning, we are keeping our feet on the ground and going game-by-game.”
Luiz also believes Chelsea have the squad to compete in every competition this season.
“When you play for big clubs and big clubs have the opportunity to play in many many competitions. I think it is amazing,” Luiz added.
“I think it is better to have games than training. I think then you have the possibilities to win titles.
“I am a lucky guy because I am always playing in big clubs and at big clubs you always try to win titles. I love that.”
