New Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed how new Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard "caused issues" during their time together at Premier League side Chelsea.

Sarri, 60, was officially presented as the new manager of the Bianconeri on Thursday, and tackled a host of issues in his first press conference with the Serie A giants.

In addition to revealing his intention to help five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo set more records, the former Napoli tactician also lifted the lid on how Hazard sometimes hindered the Blues.

"In recent years, I've had 4-3-3, but the 4-3-3 at Chelsea was very different to the one at Napoli," Sarri said at the press conference, as per Marca.

"We had to accommodate Hazard's characteristics, as he could change the game, but also his presence caused issues in defending that we had to work on."

Sarri also discussed the possibility of a return to the Allianz Stadium for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain, who spent the second half of the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Stamford Bridge from Juve.

"You know I love (Higuain) a lot. I have always been very supportive. It depends on him," he added.

"In terms of the other players at Juventus, I have to be very modest because here there are staff who have been dealing with them for many different years. I think it's absolutely fair that I listen to them, then we'll make a decision together.

"The staff know the players better than memaybe Higuain is the only one I know slightly betterso it will be up to me to listen to them and adapt."
