Davide Zappacosta

Chelsea full-back Davide Zappacosta has said he will only remain at the Stamford Bridge if he is a regular player.

Zappacosta, 26, who moved to Chelsea from Torino in 2017 noted the importance of featuring for the Italian side to his career, which according to him will only be achievable when he gets more playing time.

The Italian who is not a regular at Stamford Bridge has gotten just 12 matches in the league last season with no game yet under new manager, Maurizio Sarri.

He, however, hinted to have received offers from clubs with Inter Milan making efforts to sign him in the summer but noted that the arrival of Sarri played a part in his decision to remain at Stamford Bridge.

“I want to try to give the coach food for thought, also because my objective is to remain in the reckoning for Italy. Inter sought me in the summer, but I am happy here,” Zappacosta told Il Corriere dello Sport.

“If I were not to play much, though, I’d think about [leaving]. Nobody likes being on the bench.”

“Both [Conte and Sarri] study their opponents in depth and they take care of the team’s organisation.

Antonio, though, has his predefined tactics. Sarri wants quick touches and possession of the ball. He’s nice and often makes jokes, but most of the time only a few of us understand because they are in Italian, and I was surprised by how good his English is.

“I had problems with my language at the start, but I got by and now things are going much better. I just need another year to try to perfect it. As soon as I got here, [Alvaro] Morata welcomed me really well.

“In Chelsea, which is where I live, I’ve got to know a lot of Italians, and then in the dressing room I get on well with everybody. [Eden] Hazard is really funny, he’s joking all the time.
