David Luiz has revealed that the entire Chelsea team still supports and believes in Sarri’s football philosophy.
The Brazilian defender revealed that the Italian tactician “was not happy” after the match “but nobody was happy, so it was normal”.
Regarding the way the blues played, he said: “It is our style, it is our philosophy. I think if you asked at the beginning of the season, ‘can Chelsea keep the ball?’ – You would have said no. And now we are able to do that, like the best teams in the world.”
The Brazil international added, when asked if it was harder to trust the philosophy when Chelsea lost: “It is part of the process, when you try to do something and this is inside your mind, if you believe in it you can arrive there. This is our philosophy, I believe in it, I trust in it, so I just know we have to improve, like every team in the world.
“What Sarri has done until now is unbelievable, amazing, because normally (for) a team to understand this philosophy needs one or two years, like Manchester City and Liverpool.”
Chelsea remains in fourth position with three points separating the London side from Arsenal and Manchester United.
