The Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola was providing analysis on the 2018 Fifa World Cup on Tuesday, before it was revealed that he has to deal with a sudden offer in Europe.
This got the rumours flowing that Zola is about to discuss a possible coaching position at Chelsea. The talk is that he could assist former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea.
Zola discussed his next move on SuperSport, and here's how South African fans reacted to the news on Twitter.
