Maurizio Sarri should think twice before going public with criticism of his Chelsea players, Ruud Gullit has warned

Next time Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is asked about Eden Hazard he should avoid saying anything negative, whatever he actually thinks according to Chelsea legend.

Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri questioned his team’s mentality after last weekend’s 2-0 loss at Arsenal, but Thursday’s penalty shoot-out victory over Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final represented a telling response.

“It is very, very risky to criticise your players in public like Sarri did this week – even if you know you are right.

“Sometimes as a manager you really want to be open about what you are thinking, good or bad, and for the right reasons. You are hoping your players respond in the right way,” Gullit wrote in a BBC Match of the Day column.

Chelsea will play against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday and will lock horns against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final next month.
