Maurizio Sarri gave updates on the Chelsea futures of Gary Cahill and Danny Drinkwater during his pre-Bournemouth press conference.
Gary Cahill and Danny Drinkwater, remember them?
One was the man who inherited the armband from the legendary John Terry, the other was drafted in to replace two-time Premier League winner Nemanja Matic. It’s safe to say that neither player successfully replaced their predecessors.
The pair now look to be on their way out of Stamford Bridge and you can use betbrain to bet on where you think the pair will go next.
Maurizio Sarri has no use for them. Neither fit his style of play, and have subsequently been frozen out this term. Unfortunately for them, there doesn’t look to have been a lot of interest this month.
When asked about Cahill during his pre-Bournemouth press conference on Tuesday afternoon, Sarri revealed that there was no news on the future of the former England international. We can safely assume that no club has been willing to meet his wage demands.
On Gary Cahill’s future, Sarri says he has ‘no news’. #BOUCHE

On Drinkwater, Sarri spoke about what he has already touched on previously. Drinkwater is a misfit, not a bad player, but not a Sarri player. His lack of suitability to the system that the Italian wants his Chelsea side to play in has no room to accommodate the midfielder.
Sarri won’t play DD yet: “Drinkwater is a very good player but he is more suitable to playing with two midfielders. He is not a central midfielder or centre right or left with three. In a 4-4-2 he is a good player.” #CFC
