DAVID LUIZ has hailed under-pressure Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri for his “amazing” job.
The Blues take on Arsenal in Wednesday’s Europa League final but Sarri’s future remains up in the air despite securing Champions League football for next season.
Rex Features2 David Luiz has praised the under-fire Chelsea boss for his achievements this season
However, Luiz feels he should take huge credit for his first season in charge.
Luiz, 32, said: “I think he is doing amazing, he is doing a great season.
"He has to try to teach us to understand his mind, the way he looks at football.”
But Luiz’ team-mate Marcos Alonso believes it has been hard for the Italian to adapt due to the former banker’s non-football background.
He said: “The gaffer is still learning, he was not a football player either so he is learning a lot this year.”
Sarri has guided Chelsea to a third-place finish in the Premier League and two cup finals this season.
