Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has been heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge recently, as part of a new look coaching set up headed by former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri.
Zola is still idolised by the Blues faithful, after spending seven seasons in West London from 1996-2003. The former Italian international’s skill and technique have seen regarded as one of the best foreign imports ever to grace English football, and he sits fifth in Chelsea’s list of all time Premier League goal scorers.
Chelsea’s hierarchy are said to be close to reaching an agreement for their current boss Antonio Conte to leave the club, and for Sarri to take over on a two-year-deal. However, Zola has revealed that he is still not sure whether he will end up back at Stamford Bridge.
“There is a lot of rumours about me at the moment and nothing has happened. And we’ll see what happens in the future.
“I don’t know. I was afraid you were going to ask me this. Really, I don’t know
“But honestly, at the moment it is only talking. Nothing is decided.”
