Zola is a Chelsea legend. His name is already etched into the club’s hall of fame. It looks as though he’s about to be given a chance to make more memories at the club, this time as assistant manager.
With Chelsea announcing Antonio Conte’s departure early on Friday, the club will no doubt be eager to get a manager through the door as soon as possible. The countdown has now begun towards the Premier League season.
Sarri’s style of play is extremely different to Conte’s. He will need time to get this Chelsea side playing the standard of football that Napoli were last term. He may also need to look to the transfer market in order to help us on our way.
All that remains now is official confirmation from the club. That ought to come soon…
UPDATE: This news has since been confirmed by Gianluca Di Marzio. It’s a done deal!
