John Terry could have future on Maurizio Sarri's coaching staff at Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

Chelsea icon Terry captained the club to five Premier League titles, as well as four FA Cups and three EFL Cups, along with a Champions League and Europa League title. 'I am very open with him because he is the history of the club. "For the moment, I'm really very happy to stay here".

"He told me he wants to play but I don't know, I have to speak to him".

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 there is a pitch and there are 11 players, I feel at home anywhere", Sarri said. "He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, work on the details and give us all the information he can about the game".

Chelsea on the other hand look as if they have plenty of goals in them and host the Bluebirds on Saturday with all but full strength first team - with Cesc Fabregas the only injury doubt.

The Italian added: "I think tomorrow will be a very hard game because, mentally, the match after the break is always very hard. I am trying", Sarri said. I think [it is too soon], but I hope not!

Sarri spent the September worldwide break in England, dividing his time between walking his dog Ciro around the large garden of his new house a short drive from Chelsea's training ground in Surrey - "Similar to my name", he joked - and studying video of his team's upcoming opponents. "No more". He added: "Then I'd like to start again".
