But needs to adapt

Sarri Higuain keen to prove himself again

Gonzalo is very suitable for my football, so the feeling is fantastic.

"Managers like [Jose] Mourinho, [Antonio] Conte, now with [Maurizio] Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that?"

"But he reacted really very well, he was very keen, he played an exceptional season".

"They speak the same language with the ball".

"I've only played two games with Higuain and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger".

"I will be really very happy with him if he wants to stay, because he is the best in Europe, so I will be really very happy".

Higuain's only season under Sarri at Napoli was such a success that he described his coach as like a father.

"Gonzalo needs confidence first of all". Gonzalo at the moment is very determined, and that is important. He missed a penalty in the last match in Serie A and he missed a penalty in the final [for Argentina]. He needs a very good relationship with the coach and his team-mates.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has played the France worldwide outside his favourite defensive midfield position into a more deeper role going forward.

Guardiola has previously said that he and Sarri are from "the same school" and that education comes from Sacchi.

Premier League giants Manchester United will reportedly step up their chase for one of the most exciting young talents on the European football scene in the summer. Sometimes he needs a message from the coach in the press conference.

"Also when you see the Belgium squad we have a lot, of course, Belgian players but some from Congo like (Romelu) Lukaku, (Michy) Batshuayi and (Christian) Benteke".

Sarri said after the season that Higuain should win the Ballon d'Or and he stands by his statement, telling reporters: "I told this after the season in Naples".
