Terry's Chelsea return down to him, says Sarri

John Terry will get to make the decision over what job he takes should he opt to return to Chelsea as a coach, says Maurizio Sarri.

Terry has rejected a surprise move to Spartak Moscow for family reasons after leaving Aston Villa following a single season with the Championship 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.

Chelsea icon Terry captained the club to five Premier League titles, as well as four FA Cups and three EFL Cups, along with a Champions League and Europa League title.

Terry previously indicated he wants to return to Chelsea as the club's manager and Sarri has opened the door for the 37-year-old to join his coaching staff.

"It's up to him," Sarri told a news conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Cardiff City.

"I think that, if John prefers to start with the young players, it's right to start with the young players.

"If John wants to work with my staff, it's right that he works with my staff."
