Speaking ahead of Saturday's clash with Cardiff, when Chelsea will be seeking a fifth win from five Premier League games, Sarri said he was open to the prospect of Terry returning to the club.

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.

"I'm very happy for him", he continued. But if he wants to help us, I'm really very happy. "If he wants to play for another season, it is right he tries to play".

"Here he is a point of reference, here it is John Terry's home so he will be very important for everybody, only the presence".

John Terry has reiterated his ambition to become a manager after Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri expressed his willingness for the former captain to join his coaching staff.

"The last time I spoke with him he told me he wants to play for another season".

"I said before I want to give space to the young players", Sarri added. I hope not. It's very hard.

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

"It is very hard to recover 30 points in one season, very hard".

"I think so. I hope not. I think we need to improve".

"Yesterday [Thursday] there were problems with fever for Emerson [Palmieri] and [Davide] Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek".

"I'm trying to stress this number to my players, just telling them this number, my experience in this situation".

But Sarri doesn't believe Chelsea, as well as Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal, are good enough to compete with the other two clubs. "Then I'd like to start again".
