John Terry is hoping that Maurizio Sarri’s exciting brand of football can help push Chelsea to their sixth Premier League title.
Terry is, of course, one of the most legendary and successful figures in Chelsea’s history, being involved in all five of their previous Premier League title-winning campaigns, although the majority of those title wins came with Chelsea playing a pragmatic style of football.
The Blues have now ditched the defensive style employed by Antonio Conte, opting for the more progressive ‘Sarri ball’ football of Maurizio Sarri, and are already reaping the rewards. Having finished sixth in the table last year, Sarri has guided the Stamford Bridge-based outfit to second, level on points with Man City and Liverpool, who have all enjoyed unbeaten starts to the season.
Having taken his first foray into football management after his appointment as Aston Villa‘s assistant manager, John Terry has been talking about his former clubs current situation.
“It’s been very good,” Terry told Sky Sports. “Eden [Hazard] is on fire, isn’t he?
“I’ve come across the manager a few times, I’ve been in and around the training ground, and he’s a great guy and has got them playing very well with some exciting football at the moment.
“Long may that continue and hopefully we can push for the title again.”
