Zola told SuperSport: “There is a lot of rumours about me at the moment and nothing has happened. And we’ll see what happens in the future.
“I don’t know. I was afraid you were going to ask me this. Really, I don’t know. But honestly, at the moment it is only talking. Nothing is decided.”
Then, speaking to Premium Sport in Italy, he added: “At the moment nothing has happened, we’ll see what happens in the future.”
“Chelsea has not found a new manager, it’s true and I hope they can do it as soon as possible”.
“Very often, when a manager must to be replaced or sporting director’s role is still vacant they [journalists] think through association of ideas”.
