Former Chelsea attacker Gianfranco Zola has revealed that he would like to take charge of the Premier League giant at some point in the future.
The 45-year-old wore the Chelsea jersey from 1996 until 2003 and is keen to return to Stamford Bridge when the time is right.
Chelsea recently parted company with Andre Villas-Boas as their manager, and is currently being led by caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo. It has yet to appoint a permanent replacement for Villas-Boas, but Zola believes this is not the right moment to take the reins.
"I would love to coach Chelsea, but the conditions are not right at this point," Zola was quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport. "I have received a number of offers, but it all depends on whether I believe in the project."
The former West Ham United boss has also been linked with the position of head coach at Lazio and Melbourne Victory in the past few weeks.
