Former Chelsea and Italy striker Gianfranco Zola has returned to Stamford Bridge as assistant to new manager Maurizio Sarri.

As a player, Zola helped the club win two FA Cups, one Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup, one Uefa Super Cup and one League Cup between 1996-2003.

“For me it is an amazing thing. I am pleased to be here,” said Zola.

Zola, who resigned as Birmingham City manager in April 2017, has joined Chelsea’s pre-season tour of Australia.
