Drinkwater has no future at Chelsea under Sarri.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri revealed why Danny Drinkwater has been frozen out of his side this season.
The Midfielder, who won the Premier League title with Leicester City in 2016, has not played a single league game this season but he was back to training this week with the Blues after being charged with drink driving. He reportedly left a party in Cheshire shortly before his Range Rover crashed into a Skoda at around 12.30am on Monday morning.
However, Sarri says the 29-year-old already knows the reason why he can't get into the Chelsea team.
"He knows very well, he has never played because in my opinion he is not suited to my system and my way of playing," Sarri said of the England international as the Mirror reported. "I told him everything in August, he appreciated but decided to remain and so he knew very well the situation.
"I spoke with him in August when the market was open. I said to him to look for something different because in my opinion he doesn’t play. I said to him the reasons, my reasons, but he decided to stay.
"I have a very good relationship with him because in my opinion he is a good boy, a good player but he is not suitable for me.
"He’s not adaptable, that is my opinion. My opinion is important for me."
