It’s always an exciting time when an old face comes to town. Chelsea have an abundance of historic legends that have gone down in the lore of the club, and they don’t come much bigger than Gianfranco Zola.
The Italian was a hero to most fans growing up around the turn of the millennium. He got fans through his incredible technical ability, passion, and personality off the field – and he’s remained a popular man to this day.
You can imagine the smiles in the Transfer Tavern, then, when reports began to link the Italian with a move back to Chelsea.
Whether it happens or not remains to be seen, but it’s a decision that would be hugely popular with Chelsea fans.
We recently asked fans whether Zola could be the man to help turn Chelsea around, and a whopping 93% of fans responded positively to the prospect.
Indeed, it seems as though the little Italian legend is as popular as ever, and that’s no surprise.
It’s also no surprise that fans think that he could do a job alongside Sarri. He, of course, knows the club better than most, and he’d serve as an invaluable link between club and manager.
