Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has said John Terry can come back and play for Chelsea again if he wants to. The manager has kept all gates open for the Chelsea legend at the Stamford Bridge.

John Terry is now a free agent after leaving Aston Villa.

After leaving Aston Villa, the 37-year old defender is now roaming as a free agent. He rejected an offer last week from Spartak Moscow. However, Terry has opened his desire to join Aston Villa again for one more season, and he has been linked heavily since then.

Meanwhile, Sarri has insisted the club will not say no if Terry wants to come back at Chelsea.

“The last time I spoke with him he told me he wants to play for another season. I don’t know now the situation, but Chelsea is his home, of course. Of course [I am open to the idea]. He would be a point of reference for me and everyone here. I don’t know [if there is a chance]. He told me other things; he told me he wants to play. I have to speak to him.”


The manager further added,

“It is up to him. If he wants to play for another season, it is right he tries to play. If he wants to help us, I am really very happy.”

Sarri was also asked if Terry can return in a playing role or as a managerial role?

“I think in the coaching staff, I think. Because, as I said before, I want to give space to the young players. Fortunately, we have very strong young players: [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, [Ethan] Ampadu… and I’d like to give them the right space.”

It is now all down to John Terry to make the final decision. While the Blues hope to get an opportunity to bid him a legendary farewell before retiring from football.
