David Luiz Reveals How Maurizio Sarri Reacted In The Dressing Room After Spurs Defeat
David Luiz has revealed how Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri reacted in the dressing room after suffering his first defeat in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur.
The loss to their London rivals has allowed Spurs to climb to third and the Blues have dropped to fourth, as well as leaving Chelsea seven points behind league leaders Manchester City.
Now, the 31-year-old Brazilian defender has explained how the former Napoli boss reacted to the defeat.
"He has been, many times, angrier when we've won. It's true," he said (via the Daily Mirror).
"Nobody is happy. Of course, the coach is not happy.
"He always tries to do his best for us, and we try to do our best for him. Of course, he's not happy like every single player is not happy.
"But I think it's good for us to understand, to remind us that the Premier League is never easy. It's not easy to win any game. Like I said, we didn't play well. We played really badly, we didn't have the same intensity as in the other games.
"The good thing is that we have another game next week, so an opportunity to recover and gain some points. Then, soon, we have City, a tough team, the top club in the table. So we can try and make the gap a bit smaller then.
"It was our first loss, but even if you win you have to analyse and improve. That's the only way to success."
Following the match, the 59-year-old Italian manager revealed his disappointment with his players.
"I am disappointed because we played very badly," he said. "I think we played very badly in all directions -- physically, mentally, technically and tactically.
"I knew we had some problems and with this performance today it was clear to everybody we have problems to solve. I think in the last three or four matches we have started not really very well.
"Today I did not like anybody."
