Chelsea boss Sarri: I need Luiz. I don't care about Conte row

He also said Conte had been very hard to work with, and speculation that he might leave Chelsea rumbled on throughout the summer with Barcelona and Manchester United both harbouring serious interest in signing him.

Maurizio Sarri has said that David Luiz has a "big future" at Chelsea after he produced a composed performance in Saturday's 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town on the Premier League's opening weekend.

"I'm here", he told reporters.

Willian insists there is "no chance" he would still be at Chelsea if Antonio Conte had remained in charge.

Willian's relationship with Conte deteriorated throughout his troubled second season in charge, with the Brazilian photoshopping the Italian out of an Instagram post celebrating the club's FA Cup triumph in May.

"I disagree that he can only play as one of three central defenders", added the former Napoli coach.

Further, talking about his future now that former boss Conte has left the club, the Brazilian global added, "I have my head here and I intend to continue in the club unless the club wants to sell me".

The 29-year-old posted a photo of the entire Blues squad posing with the trophy but covered Conte with three trophy emojis.

Gary Beck, President and CEO of Horizon Air, said in a statement the plane crashed "about an hour" after it left Sea-Tac airport. He had talked to controllers about trying to pull off a "flip" or a "barrel roll" ending with "nose down and call it a night".

"After the final I got a plane right after the game to come to Brazil".

Conte fell out with a host of Chelsea stars during his controversial two-year tenure in England. "But my head is here in the club".

And David Luiz found himself frozen out under Conte for a large period last season.

Chelsea began the new Premier League season with a comfortable 3-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday. He has a lot of quality and helps our play build up from the back. "He will be very useful for us but not just on the pitch, he is also important in the dressing room". We know we have to improve.

"I think we have a good chance to turn the results around against them because now we have a different way to play football".

"Jorginho has played very well".

"Now we have to continue like that because next week, we have a great game to play against Arsenal [on Saturday] and we want to win again".
