Zola ‘in talks’ for Chelsea return

Published Add your comment

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola could be set for a sensational return to Stamford Bridge, with TMW claiming that talks are taking place over the finer details on an assistant managers contract with the ex striker.

Rumours have been circling Chelsea ever since they bowed out of the Champions League that Carlo Ancelotti is on his way out from Stamford Bridge this summer. But while the head manager position looks set to be open before the transfer period, Zola is only aiming for the assistant managers role, according to reports.


Zola, who formerly managed West Ham United, has apparently been in talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich for some time now, and the finer details of the deal are the only issues to be mapped out.

Ray Wilkins’ mid season departure is reportedly the reason for Chelsea scouting a new managerial team, and with Zola being a vocal influence over the players, fans and administration alike, he seems to the perfect ally for Chelsea to take on.
