The Brazilian defender is pleased with Sarri's "fun" approach. He said, "From his first week, I spoke with Sarri. I told him that: 'I will work hard to show you that I want to play in your team, with your philosophy'.
"I had two offers, but I told Chelsea that I wanted to stay. Would I have left if (Antonio) Conte had stayed? For sure. But Chelsea changed and took Sarri, and I tried to convince Sarri that I wanted to stay with Chelsea.
"I'm playing right now and I'm having fun. I have not played for much of the past six months. Sarri is human, he wants us to have fun playing football. He repeats every day that we have to have fun."
