Sarri plans Willian talks after forward fails to report for training


Sarri was appointed as the latest man to take the managerial hotseat at Chelsea, replacing fellow Italian Antonio Conte, who was finally sacked last month after several months of speculation.

And Sarri has confirmed Hudson-Odoi will stay at the club and fight for a place in the first-team for the new season.

Cape Town - Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he wants to have a word with Willian after the Brazilian failed to report for pre-season training on time.

We can never read too much into pre-season friendlies but it's a bonus to catch a glimpse of how preparations are going with the new season just around the corner. I don't know the situation at this moment. I want to speak to him.

Kalidou Koulibaly and Dries Mertens were among the other players linked with treading that same path, though it seems that a written contract clause prevented the FA Cup holders from prising away more of Carlo Ancelotti's top talents.

In his favour, Chelsea are in the Europa League this season and those games, as well as the Caribao Cup, could give Sarri the chance to give him some playing time.

Jose Mourinho is also keen on the forward to solve his right-wing problem and knows all about the player having coached him whilst in charge of Chelsea.

"He's a young player", he said. We are talking about top players and every club wants to keep their top players.

The Spaniard, whose side will now face Manchester City in the Community Shield game at Wembley on Sunday, said: "It's a different way".
