Sarri open to former defender's return in Chelsea coaching role

Willian: I want an extra five years at Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri open to John Terry joining Chelsea coaching staff

Terry left Chelsea in 2017 after almost 20 years at the club, where he won five Premier League titles.

"After considerable thought, I have chose to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow", Terry wrote.

"The last time I spoke with him he told me that he wants to play for another season, but I don't know the situation now", Sarri told a media conference. I have to speak with him.

"I remember in my first season in Naples the average points per match during the season was 2.28, but the average after the worldwide break was only 1.31 or 1.32 so I know that the match after the break is very hard", he told Chelsea's official website.

Asked about the possibility of Terry joining Chelsea as a player, Sarri said: 'It would be on the coaching staff, I think, because, as I've said before, we want to give space to the young players.

Steve Bruce has been trying to persuade Aston Villa's new owners to make a move for John Terry. "It's up to him, I am very open with him because of his history with the club".

'If he can stop them from conceding goals as they adapt to his style, Chelsea have the potential to be sensational.

"In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play". Maybe it's better for him to have two days of training.

Ahead of Saturday's Premier League tie against Cardiff City, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri explained that he is "open to the idea" of Terry's surprise return. "For the moment, I'm really very happy to stay here".

And Sarri knows the recent break may affect the Blues' solid form, as he learned during his time at Napoli.

"At the moment I can answer City or Liverpool".

"We need another step to be at the same level".

"But it's a good pressure, and I think if you don't feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea".

'We've earned the right to play against teams like Chelsea.
