Sarri open to Terry return in Chelsea coaching role

"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".

Maurizio Sarri understands John Terry would like to continue playing, but Chelsea are leaving the door open for a possible coaching role at the club.

A reunion with former England and Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard had also been mooted, but the Derby County manager ruled out offering the veteran a deal.

"Yesterday [Thursday] there were problems with fever for Emerson [Palmieri] and [Davide] Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek". He has won everything with the club.' Asked about the possibility of Terry joining Chelsea as a player, Sarri said: 'It would be on the coaching staff, I think, because, as I've said before, we want to give space to the young players.
