Chelsea boss Sarri unhappy with 'dangerous' Kiev pitch

Chelsea boss Sarri unhappy with 'dangerous' Kiev pitch

Chelsea's manager Maurizio Sarri has expressed unhappiness with the pitch at Kiev's NSC Olympic Stadium ahead of his team's UEFA Europa League last 16 second leg tie later on Thursday.

Chelsea took a 3-0 first-leg lead into the match in Kiev and added an away goal inside of five minutes when Giroud pounced on a Ruben Loftus-Cheek header following a corner and redirected it past Denys Boyko for the opener.

He's now starved of first-team minutes under manager Maurizio Sarri this season and is mainly having to be content with substitute cameos, but supporters are desperate for him to get more opportunities.

"I think it will be very hard, also, for Dynamo because the pitch is no good". "It's really unsafe to play any..." It's a problem for us, but also for our opponents, I think. I think that it's unsafe, really risky. I understand Chelsea fans want to see more of him and he has to do everything he can to give himself the chance of minutes. It's really unsafe to play any football here in this moment, and I think it's really very risky for injuries.

Questions have been asked about Sarri's lack of flexibility in his tactics, but Willian backed the Chelsea coach's use of Jorginho. I didn't speak with Eden about Zidane so I don't know. It's a mad one because a young English player at Chelsea at that age then you really want him to sign that long-term contract.
