Former Napoli boss Sarri made a bright start to his Chelsea career, guiding them to 12 league games without defeat, but the club have since struggled and slipped to fourth in the standings. "In my first season in Naples, he arrived later [due to the Copa America]".
The Blues are facing a battle to secure a place in the Champions League after coming under pressure from Arsenal and Manchester United.
"I hope I am the football father!"
Sarri praised Higuain's all-round performance against Huddersfield, highlighting in particular his immediate chemistry with Eden Hazard on the pitch, and the Italian is confident that Chelsea's new striker will be able to make a big impact in English football as long as he remains in a positive frame of mind.
However, the Belgium global has indicated that he enjoys playing under current Blues head coach Sarri, who is known to favour playing possession football.
The Chelsea star said "We are still learning about his concept".
"In football, you can be at the top but in three months you can be nothing", said Hazard, who has three younger bothers, all footballers. "We are from a humble family".
"I know he likes Madrid, it was his dream as a child to play there, but I also know he is very happy at Chelsea".
"Managers like Mourinho, Conte, now with Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that? I don't know the mother of Gonzalo", Sarri joked on Friday.
"It's about everyone. My target is to help the team to win something". "We are all together, and the world should do the same".
