Chelsea defender David Luiz has started all seven Premier League games for Chelsea this season.
Luiz was frozen out of the team last season by Antonio Conte and looked set to leave Stamford Bridge last summer before the arrival of Sarri.
Sarri admits Luiz is a much better player than he thought and insists the Brazilian defender can play his style of football due to his technical qualities.
“Yes, he is much better than I thought before,” Sarri admitted.
“Much better, as a player and a man. I don’t know what happened before but when I arrived immediately I had a feeling he is a very good player for my way of football as he is a very technical centre back.
“I appreciate very much the man as he is direct. If he has to say something to me, he does that. I like direct people. I like it very much.
“He was a little confused as two seasons ago he was a protagonist but then came six months without playing. So he was a little confused.
“I think he is very able to play my way with his characteristics. He is very technical and understands the action of the defensive line very much.”
What do you think of Luiz’s performances under Sarri?
