Hazard caused Chelsea tactic problems in defending says Sarri at a press conference in Italy.
Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he struggled to field his system at Chelsea so as to be able to maximise the potential of Hazard.
Sarri said he preferred playing 4-4-3 everywhere but the one Chelsea played is different.
“In recent years, I’ve had 4-3-3, but the 4-3-3 at Chelsea was very different
“We had to accommodate Hazard’s characteristics, as he could change the game, but also his presence caused issues in defending that we had to work on.”
Meanwhile, he can not put such an important player as Hazard on the bench.
