Chelsea legend and assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has revealed Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri needs time to make his mark at Stamford Bridge.
The 59-year-old Italian was appointed as Chelsea’s new manager last weekend in the wake of Antonio Conte’s long-awaited sacking.
“As long as the people at the club supports the club, have a little bit of patience with him I’m sure they will get what they are expecting,” Zola told Chelsea’s official website.
“I like the way his teams play football. They are very organised, very good defensively but also play very good football.
“I’ve always liked coaches that promote this type of football.
“I believe this is the type of philosophy this club is looking for at the moment.
“I think it can be a very good marriage. Maurizio can give the club exactly what it is looking for.”
