New Juventus coach Sarri: I changed everything at Chelsea for Hazard

New Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri has revealed he had to revamp his system at Chelsea due to Eden Hazard.

As he was unveiled as Juventus boss this morning, Sarri claimed he had to change his whole approach to the game just to accommodate the new Real Madrid signing.

He said: "We had to accommodate Hazard's characteristics, as he could change the game.

"But also his presence caused issues in defending that we had to work on."

Sarri also went on to hint that he is about to manage better players at Juve than he did working at Stamford Bridge - especially Cristiano Ronaldo.

He added: "I coached some very strong players, but training him will be yet another step forward.

"I'd like to help him break some new records."
