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

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

The defender has played all 90 minutes in the new Premier League season for Chelsea so far and is relishing working under Sarri.

The former Napoli coach has won all four Premier League matches since being hired by Chelsea.

"What I like about him is that he is so confident".

"I think Federation Internationale de Football Association has to change something for the national teams, because with four or five worldwide breaks it is very hard for us".

"If he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play".

"For sure he will be a point of reference for me, for everybody here".

Chelsea hero Claude Makelele admits he misses his time at Stamford Bridge.

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

Luiz said: "He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent".

"We need another step, I think, to be the same level". I'm really very happy. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season. I think [it is too soon], but I hope not!

"We need to improve".

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.

The blues Coach during the press conference ahead of the match said he has few injury concern like, Cesc Fabregas, who have been on the sideline since, Ruben Loftus Cheek, who picked up a knock while playing for England, Emerson and Zappacosta, both of whom he said picked up sore throats and might not be available.

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

"So, I believe in this philosophy, and then after that he is a great coach".
