Sarri admits he is worried at Chelsea's central defensive woes Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he is worried ahead of tonight’s game with Frankfurt with Chelsea’s defensive problems growing. The Blues go into tonight’s game with only two recognised first-team centre-backs fit in David Luiz and Andreas Christensen. Gary Cahill is out with an Achilles problem, and in Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Liverpool, Antonio Rudiger tore his meniscus but he continued before having to be taken off at the weekend against Man United. Rudiger underwent surgery on his knee earlier this week and it is has been revealed that he is set to miss the remainder of the season.

Gary Cahill has accused Maurizio Sarri of a lack of respect as his Chelsea career heads to a disappointing conclusion.

Club captain Cahill has won two Premier League titles and the Champions League during seven years at Chelsea but intends to leave when his contract expires in June.

The 33-year-old has played just 21 minutes of Premier League football since Sarri's arrival, with his total number of appearances in all competitions standing at only seven.

"It's been really terrible for me personally," Cahill told The Telegraph . "It will just be erased out of my head when I leave Chelsea. My last memory will be last season's FA Cup final.

Sarri hints he wants to stay at Chelsea

Sarri hints he wants to stay at Chelsea Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has suggested that his future is with Chelsea as his first season in England comes to a close. Sarri joined the club in the summer after leaving Italian side Napoli but has received mixed reviews since arriving at Stamford Bridge. The Italian however currently sees his side sitting in fourth place, two points ahead of Arsenal who occupy fifth. Sarri has also guided his team to the semi-final’s of the Europa League, with Chelsea drawing 1-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt as the London club take an away goal with them back to England.

"It's been very difficult. I have played on a regular basis over the previous six seasons and I've won everything with Chelsea, so to be watching from the stands is something I didn't expect.

"I know how the whole club works, I've got a big relationship with all the players and staff, and yet none of that has been utilised.

"If you are not playing a player, any player, for two, three, four games, then you don't have to give a reason for that. But if it gets to eight or nine games, then you have to explain the situation. What's going on? But the manager hasn't done that.

"I see some of the situations with players who won the title with Chelsea, not just myself, and it just hasn't been right. It makes it very hard for me to have respect for someone who has not respected what some of us have won with the club."

Cahill was linked with a loan move in the January transfer window, though that failed to materialise, in what has been a wasted season.

"I went to the World Cup and didn't play, but I came back with an even higher opinion of Gareth Southgate. It's all about how you treat somebody," he said.

"I've adapted to the different tactics, formations and philosophies of all the managers I've played under and will continue to learn from my next coach. Every experience, good or bad, is a learning process.

"I'm quite proud with how I have dealt with it. I've not been disruptive and I've trained hard every single day.

"I've got respect for all the other people at the club, the players and the staff and the people who helped to give me a chance, so it's been important to me to conduct myself in the right way. And when you see an Ethan Ampadu, or another young player coming through, he can see how you behave every day, so you have to set the right example."

Cahill added: "People talk as though my career is coming to an end, but it’s not like that for me at all. I 100 per cent see me playing another three or four years easily in terms of the way I look after myself.

"I'm ready to go and I leave this club thankful to all the players, staff and fans who have helped me so much, and I go with my head held high."

Roma want to snatch Sarri with £5m-a-year deal.
Roma are looking to pay a £5m-a-year deal in order to bring Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to Stadio Olimpico this summer. According to the Evening Standard, the Italian side are willing to match the head coach’s current wages at Chelsea in an attempt to replace their current boss Claudio Ranieri, who only signed a contract in February for the remainder of the season. However, it is Sarri at the top of their list after ex-Chelsea boss Antonio Conte turned down a proposed move to Roma. Sarri’s contract when signing for the Blues last July has the man in West London for two years, with the option to extend it a further 12 months.
