Football News

Yahoo Sport are reporting that Gianfranco Zola is considering a ‘sensational’ return to Chelsea in a managerial role next season, with Blues owner Roman Abramovich planning to pair him with Guus Hiddink in a new look managerial line up.

Zola was a superstar for Chelsea, with the Italian international making 229 appearances for the club. Zola was voted Football Writer's Player of the Year in 1997 and is thought to be one of Chelsea's greatest ever players.


The legend has since been quite vocal about his opinions on Chelsea since leaving the club, and Abramovich reportedly sees Zola as a great asset to the coaching line up.

Reports have been circulating for a while now that Carlo Ancelotti is on his way out of Chelsea, after the Blues lost to Manchester United in the Champions League quarter final. Hiddinnk is the favourite to take over as manager, and should Zola choose to be part of the managerial team, Yahoo Sport is also reporting that Porto coach Andre Villas-Boas may also be garnering interest from Chelsea.

Villas-Boas worked at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, and should Zola, Hiddink and the Porto coach all agree to move to Chelsea, Abramovich will no doubt have brought together a terrifyingly good managerial group.
