Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola recently returned to the club but this time as assistant first team coach, working alongside new manager and fellow Italian Maurizio Sarri.

During his time as a Chelsea player, Zola helped the club win four major trophies before moving to Sardinia in 2003, and he explains how the club has changed in the 15 years which have passed.

“Well, we’re talking about a long, long time ago and, of course, the club is not the same but it seems to me as though the club is certainly going in the right direction,” Zola said.

Zola also revealed that he’d work to improve the club alongside Sarri.

He added: “It’s certainly a much bigger club than it was when I was here, and I’m pleased about that because it means the whole place is improving. We’re here, myself and Maurizio, to help the club improve and keep growing.”
