Kovacic confident of adapting under Sarri and Chelsea

Chelsea's summer signing Mateo Kovacic believes he won't face any difficulties in adapting to the Premier League as he feels wanted by both Maurizio Sarri and the Blues.

The Croatia international joined the Blues on a season-long loan as part of an agreement which saw Thibaut Courtois head to the Bernabeu and he has since made his debut in the derby win over Arsenal.

Speaking after that game, Kovacic admitted that he has a good association with Sarri and he is confident of excelling under the guidance of the former Napoli head coach.

"That is what I need. Sarri knows me for a long time and I watched a lot of his matches. He loves to play, the team is great, with a lot of big players. I don't expect it to be hard for me to adapt," he told Sport Klub TV.

Chelsea have made a bright start to their Premier League season with back-to-back victories over Huddersfield Town and Arsenal respectively but they are scheduled for a tricky challenge against Newcastle United this weekend.
