John Terry will get to make the decision over what job he takes should he opt to return to Chelsea as a coach, says Maurizio Sarri. Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has instated a revolutionising gameplay at his side which is reaping overwhelming rewards from it.
"I don't know, the last time I spoke to him he told me that he wants to play for another season but I don't know the situation", Sarri told reporters at his news conference ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Cardiff City.
The hunch is that a title win is too much to ask in this transitional campaign, especially as the club will have at least six Thursday night assignments in the Europa League.
After rejecting the chance to join Russia's Spartak Moscow earlier this week, Chelsea legend John Terry has been presented with an opportunity to rejoin his old club.
Chelsea take on Cardiff at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, with Sarri looking to become just the fourth manager to win his first five Premier League games after Carlo Ancelotti, Craig Shakespeare and Pep Guardiola. "I am very open with him because of his history with the club, he's won everything with the club so it's up to him".
Liverpool now top the table with four wins out of four, though Chelsea and Watford are also on 12 points after their flawless starts to the season.
While promoted Cardiff are yet to win this season, Sarri said they will provide a tough test.
"At the moment, for me, Liverpool and Man City are better than us".
"We did well today, we played with our style and our passion and we did very well".
"We need another step I think to be at the same level".
Hazard scored twice in a devastating seven-minute spell before the break to turn the game on its head, both goals courtesy of superb link-up play from Giroud, who was making his first start of the season at the expense of Alvaro Morata. Only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of this kind of match.
"My feeling is that now we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase".
