Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola believes Antonio Conte is the best manager for Chelsea amid speculation Conte would leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Conte has struggled this season with Chelsea after leading the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season in charge.
Conte’s relationship with the Chelsea board has deteriorated this season with the Italian publicly expressing his frustration at Chelsea’s transfer business.
Despite Conte’s struggles this season, Zola believes Conte is the best manager for Chelsea.
“It is easy to say Antonio Conte is not happy. He is a winner, and has always been like that since he was a player,” Zola told the BBC.
“He wants things to go his way and right now they are not, so he cannot hide his disappointment.
“I genuinely think he is a good fit for Chelsea, one of the best coaches around, and as I want the best for Chelsea so I hope he stays. There are a few issues, but hopefully they solve them.”
