Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has been impressed with Antonio Conte’s work at Chelsea but he admits the speed at which Conte worked his magic at Chelsea surprised him.
“I’ve been impressed because I didn’t expect him to achieve what he has so early,” Zola told Chelsea official website.
“But I know Antonio, I know his qualities as a coach and I had no doubt he was going to do a good job.
“What is good is that he’s been able to get into the system so quickly. I hope they continue with the way they’re going because the challenges this season are big, both for him as a coach and Chelsea as a team.
“So I hope they can keep that consistency and continuity until the end of the season.”
