Premier League side Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he would be to veteran John Terry returning to the Stamford Bridge as a coach.

Terry spent a year ago on loan at Aston Villa and impressed as Steve Bruce steered them to a place in the Championship play-off final.

Surmising that the decision is Terry's alone tonight, Sarri highlighted his own awareness of what the Chelsea defender of nearly two decades means to the club, and how happy he would be to welcome him 'home'. For sure, he will be a point of reference for me.

"It's up to him". "I think in one week he will be ready to play. 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".

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.

Chelsea will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the new season when they take on Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Asked about the prospect of Terry returning, Sarri added: "I don't know".

"I am very happy to be here five years". But I hope, in the future, I think I will be able to give him space, to give a space to [Hudson-] Odoi, to [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek.

The highest scoring player of the season to this point, will be a good differential captain this week.

"We have to make decisions, which I do with the owner in terms of what we can do and what we can't do". "He's training with the team during the week, so now he has only to improve his physical condition". 'They are very, very young and they are, for sure, the future of the club.' Loftus-Cheek is a doubt for the game against Cardiff as Chelsea return to Premier League action following the global break.

"I am very open with him, because he's the history of the club".

Sarri says he could try to stop smoking for "one, two years.no more".

"I don't know (if there is a chance)".

Sarri's single-minded focus means he has not yet explored London - Conte would often explore the restaurants and sights of the surrounding area with his family - but he said he has settled easily into his new environment.
