Now he’s a report that every Chelsea fan could get behind…
According to Corriere della Sera, Maurizio Sarri is ‘very close’ to becoming Chelsea manager. The Italian putting pen-to-paper would end a month long saga and put predecessor Antonio Conte out of his misery.
As if appointing one of the most coveted managers in the world, who is renown for the expansive and entertaining football his teams play, wasn’t enough for you – listen to this.
Corriere della Sera believe that Sarri will appoint Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola as his assistant manager. Zola could finally be set to return to Stamford Bridge, where he belongs.
We’ve had to wait for a definitive answer on our managerial situation, it’s been frustrating for all of us. If the Sarri deal does get over the line, though, and Zola comes with him, it’d be worth waiting a lifetime for. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for this one.
