Maurizio Sarri is hopeful that Chelsea can successfully appeal their transfer ban and has revealed he is already planning for pre-season.
FIFA is accusing Chelsea of breaching rules to protect teenage players and have imposed a ban for two transfer windows.
Chelsea have launched an appeal, although though no decision has been made on whether the ban will be frozen during the legal process.
But Sarri believes there is ‘a chance’ Chelsea will win their appeal and has also confirmed that he is already making plans ahead of next season.
‘I am not particularly interested,’ Sarri told Sky Sport Italia when asked about Chelsea’s transfer ban.
‘We just planned out a possible pre-season activity schedule going up to the start of the Premier League in August.
‘In any case, there are some appeals going on and there’s a chance it could all get sorted out.’
Sarri is also buoyed by Chelsea’s run of improved results following their 3-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
‘The team is finding some consistency in performances, results and also in defensive solidity. We are on the right track,’ said Sarri..
‘We won four of our last five games and drew the other with Manchester City [after 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup final], in that period conceding only one goal and scoring 10.
‘However, seeing as we had problems with mentality and consistency in the past, we need to be on alert and make sure it doesn’t happen again.’
