Former Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola has revealed he wishes the west London club had told him sooner he would not be part of Frank Lampard’s coaching staff. 

Lampard was named Chelsea’s manager on Thursday 4th on a three-year deal after just a year of coaching Championship side Derby. After his announcement, the Chelsea legend decided not to keep Zola, who was assistant to former coach Maurizio Sarri. However, Zola’s wish was that the club should have informed him earlier that he won’t be part of Lampard’s board.

“I found out quite late and the manager positions of the other teams have all been sorted out,” he told the Sun. 

“Regardless, it is a minor thing for me. It was important that it helped my career. Working for a top club with a top coach has been good for me. I was a head coach before and my main ambition is to return to that. But to work for Maurizio and Chelsea was a great opportunity.” 

Lampard replaced Sarri after the Italian took up the opportunity to return to Italy as manager of Juventus.
