Gianfranco Zola has been named Chelsea assistant first-team coach to new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Sarri was officially unveiled in the role on Wednesday, with Zola now confirmed as his No 2 later the same day.

Zola returns to Stamford Bridge having enjoyed a seven-year spell in west London as a player, during which time he scored 80 goals, including the winner in the 1-0 victory over Stuttgart in the 1998 European Cup Winners’ Cup final.

The Italian helped Chelsea win four major trophies while at the club and the 52-year-old – who has managed West Ham, Watford and Birmingham – will now work hard to play his part in helping secure further success as part of the coaching staff.
