Mateo Kovacic explains the differences between Frank Lampard and Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic believes he is able to express himself more freely under Frank Lampard than he could do under Maurizio Sarri. The Croatian signed on a one-year loan deal from Real Madrid lasts summer and completed a permanent move to the cub in July. He made 51 appearances for the club. "He gives me more freedom and I can take the ball and go forward. I feel good," Kovacic said. "A good connection with the coach and all the team. I am a Chelsea player now so I feel better about that. Last year was only a loan. I feel better and more confident than last year. I am missing some part of my game and I can improve and get better, but I think it will come for sure." The 25-year-old believes his performances will only keep getting better and better under Lampard. He added: "He gives us more freedom to play, more creativity. We can change positions. We are aggressive. We are doing well but it is only one month with the coach so we can improve. Last season was also a good connection with the coach. It was also a good year last year. The connection is good. The fans love him and so do the players. He is young and he understands us."
