Speaking in his press conference ahead of the FA Community Shield clash against Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday, he insisted: "I spoke yesterday with [Willian] about him being late [to training], not his future". "I think we have played against a good team in Arsenal and we could see the way we want to play", the defender said.
"I think it's the time in my career where I need to play as many games as I can".

"If I want to stay here for 10 years, then I have to win".
Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: "Gabriel is undoubtedly one of the best young forwards in world football, so to have him commit his future to us is a huge boost. But in this moment of the season it's very important, the performance".
The approach known as "Sarri-ball" will grace Stamford Bridge this season as the Blues move away from a mainly defensive outlook.
