Football governing body FIFA recently banned Chelsea from registering new players for the next two transfer windows but the Blues have appealed the ban.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists he isn’t concerned by a possible transfer embargo this summer because he is very confident in his players.

“I am very confident in my players,” Sarri said.

“We have a lot of very good young players who are improving. If they are able to improve we will be a better team in the future.

“I am not worried about the market; I am confident in my players.”

London rivals Tottenham just moved into their brand new stadium this week while Chelsea have halted plans to build a new stadium.

Asked if it’s important Chelsea get a new stadium in future, Sarri said: “I don’t know, probably yes, but I like Stamford Bridge very much. The atmosphere is very good, the people are very close to the pitch, and I like it very much.

“I was very happy with the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge in the last match. Our fans helped our players for 90 minutes.”

Sarri was also asked to comment on the racism at the Cagliari v Juventus match earlier this week.

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci said after the game that Juventus teenage striker Moise Kean was to be partly blamed for the racist chants he received from the Cagliari fans but has since apologised for the comments after he was heavily criticised.

“I was surprised this happened in Cagliari because usually in Cagliari the atmosphere in the stadium is good,” Sarri said.

“Leonardo Bonucci made a mistake, but I am sure he probably wanted to say something different because I am sure Leonardo is not a racist. He made a mistake of course.

“We can only be an example for people, but it’s very difficult to solve the problem.”
