Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has revealed that his dream is to become the club’s manager some day, according to reports from the Express.
The 49-year-old played for the Blues from 1996 to 2003, making a total of 312 appearances while managing to score 80 goals.
However, despite admitting his ambition to return as a manager, Zola revealed that he still needs to gather a lot of experience before he can take over at Stamford Bridge.
“My dream, let us say my ambition, is to be Chelsea manager some day in the future,” he said.
“However, I realise that I need to improve as a manager if I want to get there. And I am working hard to achieve my goal. Qatar is helping me a lot in this regard.”
He is currently in charge of Qatari based club Al-Arabi, but has also spent time at West Ham United, Watford, and Cagliari, while also managing the Italy Under-16 squad.
His former side has seen a huge fall from grace so far this season after picking up six loses from their previous 11 Premier League games.
Current manager Jose Mourinho is under heavy pressure from the board given that the Blues are now 15th on the table, 14 points away from Manchester City in first.
