Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has admitted Chelsea will always be his team.

“I loved my time there [at Watford], just like I did at West Ham – I loved both clubs – but Chelsea is, and will always be, my team,” Gianfranco Zola wrote for The Coaches Voice.

“So, when I got the opportunity to go back there, I couldn’t say no.

“Chelsea is where I enjoyed myself the most. I enjoyed my football more than anywhere else, so going back as a coach really was great.”

Zola spent seven years at Chelsea as a player and also returned to the club to become assistant manager to Maurizio Sarri.
