"The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season", said Sarri on Friday (Sept 14).

"Chelsea is his home of course", Sarri stated when asked about Terry's potential return to the club as a coach.

The Blues who have won 4 games on the bounce are getting ready for a weekend for a game against winless Cardiff who lost 3-2 to Arsenal last time around and it is expected that Chelsea will run out winners in the game making it 5 wins.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri arrives ahead of a Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Bounemouth, at Stamford Bridge, London, Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018.


"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy". He has won everything with the club so it is up to him.

Here, he's a point of reference. I hope not. It's very hard.

There is no consideration for Terry returning to Stamford Bridge as a player, with Sarri prioritising young talent like Wales worldwide Ethan Ampadu.

"I said before I want to give space to the young players", Sarri added.


Chelsea's ideal start to the season has led to suggestions they can challenge for the title after finishing fifth last term, well adrift of champions Manchester City. So I know that the matches after the break are very, very hard.

Worldwide football should be played at the end of every campaign rather than on specific dates throughout the club season, according to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.

Maurizio Sarri has dismissed Chelsea's chances of winning the title this season and believes it will be a straight fight between Manchester City and Liverpool.

Chelsea will also welcome back Cesc Fabregas who has been sidelined since the season started with an injury and Sarri is ecstatic that the former Arsenal midfielder will be fit enough to feature. "We will play against a very physical team, so I think it we want to get points, we need a very good performance".
