Ex Napoli boss, Maurizio Sarri has shared that Chelsea can step it up next season despite their transfer ban.
The London club’s appeal against the two-window transfer ban placed on them by FIFA two months ago is about to be heard by the governing body’s Appeal Committee on April 11, while Chelsea also have the right to head to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) if the ban is not overturned.
When Sarri was asked if the ban would affect Chelsea next season, he said, “No, because I’m really very confident in my players. We have a lot of young players who are really good and improving.
“If they are able to improve, we will probably be a better team in the future. So I’m not worried about the market. I am confident in my players.”
On changes ahead of the West Ham clash, his words, “I have to consider that, in this moment of the season, we need to change,”
“We played 51 matches and then because, in the last part of the season, I want 20 players completely involved in our targets.”
“I don’t know. I have to decide who is going to play against West Ham and who is going to play Slavia [Prague on Thursday].”
On Higuain, he said, “I think he needs time to improve his physical condition and time to be suitable for the Premier League,” Sarri said. “I think he is able to do it.
“Then, at the same time, we are lucky because we have [Olivier] Giroud. At the moment he’s in a very good mental and physical condition. We have to play every three days, so we need both.”
