Maurizio Sarri doesn’t have a problem if John Terry opts to join his coaching staff in near future. But the gaffer has made it clear Terry doesn’t have any future as a player at the Stamford Bridge.
Terry left the club in 2017 following a prolonged Chelsea career and joined Aston Villa in the Championship. He went on to have a very productive outing in the second tier as his leadership skills led the Midland side to the Championship playoffs where they were narrowly defeated by Fulham.
Terry’s future has been the subject of the speculation as the player recently rejected a lucrative offer from Spartak Moscow. He has also been linked with a return to Villa Park as Steve Bruce is in the lookout for a defender who could stop leaking goals.
Sarri said, “The last time I have spoken with him, he told me that he wants to play for another season.
“But I don’t know now the situation. I am talking about a week ago.
“Chelsea is his home, of course. I’m open to the idea of course.
“For sure, he will be a point of reference for me. For everybody here, I think.
“I don’t know if there is a chance. He told me a lot of things, that he wants to play. I don’t know. I’d have to speak to him
“It’s up to him. If he wants to play for another season, I think it’s right that he tries to play. But, if he wants to help us, I’m really very happy
“Here is John Terry’s home. So he will be very important for everybody here. Only his presence.
“It’s up to him. It’s up to him. I am very open with him because he is the history of the club. He has won everything with the club, so it’s up to him.”
