Newly appointed Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri could not guarantee the stay of Edin Hazard and Thibaut Courtois at the club with the duo linked away to Real Madrid.
Sarri told reporters that he is one of the few managers who worries about the pitch and not the transfer market.
The former Napoli coach said he will like to keep the best players but will however work with whoever is at his disposal.
“Clearly we would like to keep the strongest players. This is what any manager and club wants to do. But we will have to see how the transfer market will go over the next few days,” Sarri told reporters.
“I am much more of a pitch manager than a general manager. I am one of the few managers who is bored by the transfer market. I don’t want to talk about the transfer market and I’m not that interested in it. Our task as managers is growing the players that we have” he added.
