"There is a misunderstanding in the feeling that he wants to get a move for the wrong reasons, but certainly he was pushing to go out of Chelsea because of his child", Henrotay told BBC 5 Live's "Sportsweek" radio show. I am studying my players.

"We're happy because to be honest our pre-season games were not that good", he said. "But I have seen a player who is very happy to stay here, so I think it will be no problem, the new contract". "We moved the ball well and to have a good bench is always good". Three goals and a clean sheet.

"I don't know, he has always kicked the penalty like this", Sarri shrugged.
