Sarri open to bringing Terry 'home to help us'

Sarri, the Chelsea manager, believes that there is a prospect Terry can join his staff and return to the club where he served with distinction, making 717 appearances, before leaving in 2017, although it is unlikely to be this season.

Maurizio Sarri's side fell behind in their latest outing at Stamford Bridge, but hit back in some style and Hazard led that charge with a talismanic display.

Chelsea's ideal start to the season has led to suggestions they can challenge for the title after finishing fifth last term, well adrift of champions Manchester City.

"I think that, if John prefers to start with the young players, it's right to start with the young players".

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

The Italian boss now boasts an unbeaten record in his first four league games with the Blues, but is wary of dropping points after a host of players took part in worldwide duty having experienced a poor return with Napoli during his time with the Serie A outfit.

However, asked if he would welcome him returning to the club where Terry remains a massive favourite among fans, the Italian replied: "Yes, of course".

Liverpool have won their opening four games of a league season for the first time since 1990-91 under Kenny Dalglish. To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or of if it's late in the season.

"Mentally the match after the (international) break it is very hard; materially because we will play against a very physical team", he said.

Cardiff have picked up just two points from their opening four Premier League games and are one of five teams still without a win.

Sarri revealed he has been preparing for the intense set of fixtures over the past few weeks to ensure his side are well prepared to take maximum points, he added: "We have to play seven matches in 23 days, so I had to work".

'I don't know today the situation because I have to speak with the doctor.

Sarri has enjoyed a fast start in his initial campaign in England as the Blues recorded four wins on-the-trot in as many Premier League games. I have seen a lot of matches, of Cardiff and PAOK, West Ham and Liverpool, so I had to work.

"Sometimes I do it here at Cobham, sometimes at home. I think we need to improve".

"Usually long [days], yes".
