The world soccer governing body on Wednesday, upheld Chelsea’s transfer ban, after they were found guilty of breaching rules on the transfer and registration of overseas players under the age of 18.
Chelsea refuted FIFA’s findings and said that they would appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Sarri said that the Premier League club needed to invest in the market to close the gap on league leaders, Manchester City and Liverpool.
“I don’t believe in when you buy 10 players. I think we have to buy only one or two players.
“It’s very difficult to cover the gap at the moment. We need to work; probably we need to do something from the market.
“It’s not easy, because the level of the top two is very, very high.
“Otherwise it’s very difficult to improve immediately. I think we are a very good team, so we need only one, two players, no more,” he told Reporters on Wednesday.
Sarri said that he had not discussed the situation with the club’s hierarchy as he prepared his squad for Eintracht Frankfurt’s visit for the second leg of their Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday.
The first leg ended 1-1.
“We didn’t speak about the market, also because, at the moment, we don’t know if we’ll be able to go into the market.
“If the club is banned from making any transfers, then we’d have to keep the squad we have and bring some of the loan players back in, and that would give them an opportunity to play more.
“But, for me, that’s not something that should be used to get an opportunity to play. It should be down to hard work and playing well,” the Italian added.
