  • David Luiz: 'I believe in Maurizio Sarri philosophy'

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Brazilian defender has had an up-and-down career during his two spells at Chelsea, being an integral part of Antonio Conte's Premier League title success of 2016/17, before falling out of favour with the Italian the year after.

"I have my dog here with a very big garden, so the dog is very happy. It's what I really want to do". I think so (that this season is too soon for Chelsea), but I hope not.

When asked about who are the contenders for the trophy this term, he said: "At the moment, I can answer City or Liverpool". 'Fortunately, we have very strong young players; (Ruben) Loftus-Cheek, (Callum) Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu, and I'd like to give them the right space.

Chelsea on the other hand look as if they have plenty of goals in them and host the Bluebirds on Saturday with all but full strength first team - with Cesc Fabregas the only injury doubt.


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.

"We need another step, I think, to be the same level". "It's very hard. The gap was 30 points at the beginning of the season". "I think we need to improve".

"I'm trying to stress this number to my players, just telling them this number, my experience in this situation".

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri is happy to welcome John Terry back to the club, with the former defender given the chance to choose his own role.

"So, I believe in this philosophy, and after that he is a great coach".
