Chelsea legend and assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has urged the hierarchy to give sufficient time to Maurizio Sarri after he was appointed as the Blues’ new head coach. The 59-year-old was recruited by the Blues earlier this month after an extended transfer saga and Zola believes that he board should offer the tactician with some leverage to make an impression.
He said: “As long as the people at the club support the club, have a little bit of patience with him, I'm sure they will get what they are expecting. 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.”
