Hazard excited by Sarri arrival as Chelsea plan announcement in 48hrs

Eden Hazard is backing Chelsea's move for former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri.

Gazzetta dello Sport says Chelsea has agreed to bring in Sarri as a replacement for Antonio Conte, with an announcement expected over the next 48 hours.

And Hazard, encouraged by the praise from his Belgium teammate Dries Mertens, is pushing particularly hard for this arrival.

Sarri won't be taking his Napoli backroom team with him to London.

Assistant manager Francesco Calzona, collaborator Simone Bonomi and fitness coach Sinatti are remaining at Napoli and will work with new boss Ancelotti.
