Sarri open to Terry return in Chelsea coaching role

Sarri open to Terry return in Chelsea coaching role

Terry left Aston Villa at the end of last season before beginning negotiations with Spartak, but he says he is fully fit and feeling good after a break with his family.

"Of course (I'm open to having him)".

"We need another step, I think, to be the same level".

"Fortunately we have strong young players, and I would like to give them a space". If he wants to help us I am happy [for him to do so].

"It's up to him, if he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play".

Derby County and Spartak Moscow have both reportedly dropped out of the race for Aston Villa target John Terry.

Terry said his goodbyes to Chelsea last summer, calling time on a phenomenal career at Stamford Bridge, during which he established himself among the greatest players ever to pull on the shirt.

Sarri made it clear he had no interest in signing 37-year-old as a player because it would limit the opportunities for young central defenders such as Ethan Ampadu. "At the moment, for me, it's not easy to give space to everyone".

"I think so. I hope not".

'They are very, very young and they are, for sure, the future of the club'.

Many believe the new coach is struggling to get Napoli out of the Sarri hangover, but Ancelotti stressed that he does not want to completely abandon the current Chelsea manager's imprints on the team.

"In this first period, for me it was very important not to change - especially the defensive line", he said.

Loftus-Cheek is a doubt for the game against Cardiff as Chelsea return to Premier League action following the global break.

"Fabregas now is very well", he said.

"In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play". I don't know. I'd have to speak to him.

Cesar Azpilicueta will again lead out Chelsea against Cardiff despite the fact that Sarri has not decided on his permanent captain, as the Italian wants to discuss his choice with the players and the club before making his appointment public.
