Chelsea defender Luiz discusses Sarri’s ‘new philosophy.’

Chelsea defender David Luiz has been discussing the new philosophy that Blues manager Maurizio Sarri is attempting to implement at Stamford Bridge.

Brazil international Luiz has preached the need for humility and patience as he and his team-mates become accustomed to the demands of their new coach, while the 31-year-old centre-back also admitted that Sarri has only revealed a tiny snippet of his footballing philosophy to the media.

“The ambition has to be to win every single match, every single competition, this is Chelsea we can’t think in a different way but we also have to have humility to understand we’re at the beginning of a new philosophy, so we start day-by-day every single week,” Luiz told Sky Sports.

“I think every coach comes with new stuff and can improve and help us and of course Sarri are already taught me many things I never saw before. It’s great to understand football – it never stops – since I started playing football I always learn from every coach, it’s great.

“He just gives to you [the public] five per cent of the idea, he’s not going to give you 100 per cent of the idea, one of the parts of the idea is to focus on the ball and different parts of the pitch, you have to understand the movement.

“I think we are in the beginning, we already head everything but you have to learn in your head and pass this to your body and synchronise.”

Chelsea are currently joint top of the Premier League having won all three of their opening games.
