Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola believes “all the players believed in what we were doing” despite Maurizio Sarri had some issues during his first season abroad as manager.
Zola told journalists after the victory of Europa League trophy: ‘It’s football, no? During a season you can have good moments or bad moments,
What is important is always believing in your work and always giving your best. That’s what we did”.
He added: “Fortunately the players believed in what we were doing, they helped us a lot, and we went through all the problems and difficulties that we had. We are all here celebrating and I think we deserved something”.
