Maurizio Sarri is a great guy and he fully deserves the Europa League success

besoccer: David Luiz hailed Maurizio Sarri’s “amazing” impact on Chelsea following the glittering 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Europa League final in Baku.

Former Napoli boss Sarri lifted his first major trophy after Eden Hazard’s double and one apiece from Olivier Giroud and Pedro torpedoed Arsenal’s bid to squeeze into next season’s Champions League. Hazard revealed the match is likely to mark a “goodbye” to the Blues and doubt also surrounds the club’s head coach, Sarri having been heavily linked to the vacant Juventus post in recent weeks.

Uncertainty has plagued the Italian since a mid-season slump, which brought criticism of his playing style, but centre-back David Luiz commended his contribution.

“He’s been amazing for this club,” the Brazilian said on the pitch after full-time. “I don’t know about the speculation, everybody talks about everything. Now is the time to talk about the title. Sarri believed in my game. He’s a great guy, a great coach and he deserves this.

“I think it was a great year. We had ups and downs but I think we improved a lot, learned a lot and finished very well. We fight for the Champions League in third position [in the Premier League] and today we won a trophy.”

Sarri still has two seasons left to run on the contract he signed at Stamford Bridge in July 2018.
