Zola eyes future Chelsea return

Former Chelsea star Gianfranco Zola has revealed that he would love to manage the former Premier League champions at some point in the future, according to Goal.com.

The 45-year-old Italian, who spent seven memorable years at the London club between 1996 and 2003, scoring 80 goals in the process, was quoted as saying: “I would love to coach Chelsea, but the conditions are not right at this point.”

The Stamford Bridge outfit are currently on the hunt for a permanent successor to Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas, who was shown the door earlier this season following some poor results. Caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo has been in temporary charge since March and has guided the Londoners into the Champions League semi-finals.

Zola, who previously managed West Ham United for two seasons in the Premier League between 2008 and 2010, has been linked with the position of head coach at both Lazio and Melbourne Victory in recent weeks. Meanwhile, Goal.com also claims that the Italian has already been approached by Chelsea about becoming part of the backroom staff.
