The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been locked in conversation all day long…
It’s been a mixed start to the season for Chelsea, and with Antonio Conte’s long-term future far from assured, there is a lot of anxiety amongst the supporters in the pub.
When reports emerged earlier this week regarding Andrea Pirlo, then, it was a very interesting topic of discussion. Quotes sourced by the Sun from Pirlo seemingly refused to rule out the prospect of the Italian linking up with Chelsea in a coaching role, and that led to a lot of discussion in the pub.
Our landlord decided to open up the debate and find out what fans really think about the topic, and it’s fair to say that the results came in the form of a landslide. Indeed, when questioned on whether they would like to see him come in, a whopping 83% of Chelsea fans revealed that they would like to see Pirlo at Stamford Bridge.
In truth, it’s no real surprise given what he could bring. He has so much experience, and his quality would be of a massive benefit to so many of Chelsea’s players. Not to mention the fact that he and Conte go way back, and so his arrival could be a way of appeasing the Italian manager.
There’s no real downside to the prospect of Pirlo coming to the club, and so if there is space for him, the Chelsea fans are under no illusions – they would love to see him at Stamford Bridge.
