"I spoke with him for three days - I don't remember exactly - one month ago, or 45 days ago", said Sarri, who dined with Ranieri afterwards in the Chelsea training ground canteen.
Olivier Giroud has always been considered one of the Premier League's best looking footballers, he is a very handsome man, but it seems that most people didn't realise quite how ripped he is.
Olivier Giroud scored twice, 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi netted his first Chelsea goal and Alvaro Morata was also on target against 10-man PAOK. I play at Stamford Bridge, I'm happy, but of course every player wants to play more. "It is an early kick-off too so we need to be ready for it".
"We didn't find out for a week that it was salmonella, so I was just at home being sick and really feeling like I can't get out of bed", he said.
Will Hudson-Odoi get forthcoming opportunities?
Moses was a noticeable absentee from Chelsea's match day squad against PAOK Salonika in their UEFA Europa League match on Thursday night at the Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi, like everyone under Sarri, can only make the Italian manager's life hard by putting in strong performances whenever called upon. Given he plays in a position in which Chelsea are well-stocked, it might be a case of waiting for the misfortune of a rival teammate through injury or suspension.
And the Blues will be welcomed back to the Premier League by a familiar face in the form of new Fulham boss, Claudio Ranieri. They said you have to play four or five games.
Hudson-Odoi is homegrown but there is no getting away from the fact that since Roman Abramovich's takeover in 2003, the Blues have been huge spenders.
