Chelsea Legend Promised

Chelsea have today said that they will choose a man that can take the club to sucess and they also let slip that the man is a Chelsea Legend.

After Chelsea let slip yesterday that the will hire a legend there is intense speculation about who will they choose. Will it be Dennis Wise or will it be Gianfranco Zola? No one knows. They both have past managerial experience but none have experience at the top so it will be interesting who they choose.
Maybe add a bit more detail to the updates. They appear to be quite short. Just a suggestion :)

Chelsea Appoint Zola AS Manager

Chelsea have announced Gianfranco Zola as their new manager after a turbulent two weeks which saw Jose Mourinho sacked and two days later Chelsea announce that they will appoint a Chelsea legend as their new manager. This is his first managerial post since leaving Watford in 2013

Many Chelsea fans were left sad and angry after Jose Mourinho left the club but have warmly received their new manager saying' After Jose Mourinho left we were not sure about the decision that the club made but I am sure that Zola will do a great job as he looks like he actually cares about the fans and he has a special connection with us

Zola first signed for Chelsea in 1996 FOR £4.5 million and went on to score 80 goals in 312 games and was voted the club's best ever player. He was known for his vision and his dribbling and scored some fantastic goals. He did as a player but can he do it as a manager.

Zola'We Are The BEST club in England' before BUST-UP

The day after Zola was announce as Chelsea's new manager, he was called to Stamford Bridge for a news conference:

Reporter:How do you feel at becoming Chelsea's new manager?

Zola:I feel great and everyone knows how I feel about the club's fans and the club itself. If there was something called a club crush, Chelsea would be it

Reporter:Do you think you could take this club to the top?

Zola: They could have been at the top last season if Mourinho was not negative because Chelsea are the best club in England at the moment in time

Reporter:Who do you think will win the league?

Zola: Chelsea because we are the best team in the league and we have the best players, team spirit and best manager

Reporter: I say and other people say that you are the worst manager in the league because everyone has achieved something in their managerial careers but you have achieved nothing in your career.

Zola: You want an answer?

Zola Makes first moves in Transfer Market But is Fined

Zola has made his first moves in the transfer market buying Lars Bender for £18 million and buying Bernd Leno for £25.5 million as a replacement for the out-going Thibaut Courtois. The Blues also brought Mateo Musacchio from Villareal for £19 million and Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg for £13.5 million.

Zola fought off interest from Manchester City and Arsenal for the services of Lars Bender and brought him because he needed a replacement for John Obi Mikel who went to PSG for £11.5 million. After Thibaut Courtois left for the sunny shores of Spain or more accurately Barcelona FOR £30 million, Zola turned to Bernd Leno and secured his services for a reported fee of £25.5 million which some pundits have criticised as inflated but Zola was adamant that he was worth every penny.

He said'We needed to sign a central midfielder to increase our numbers as we only had Cesc(Fabregas) and Ramires so we looked at our options and Bender was the best and affordable too.People will say that the money we paid for Bernd Leno was too much but He is young and under the guidance of the coaches and of Petr (Cech) he can go onto be a great keeper and I believe he is worth every penny.

Zola also completed the signing of Mateo Musacchio for a reported fee of £19.5 million for a replacement for the absent David Luiz who went to PSG for £40 million. he also completed the signing of Ricardo Rodriguez for £13.5 million from Wolfburg. He also brought John Souttar and sold Remy for a fee of £15 million to Manchester City.

Zola said'People may say that Musacchio was too much but he is the natural heir to John Terry at the centre of defence and he will be a fantastic player in the years to come. Ricardo Rodriguez will be providing competition for Luiz and will challenge for a starting spot'

Zola was fined £500,000 for punching the journalist but said the journalist deserved it.

More Signing arrive for Zola

Chelsea have completed the signing of Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for £15 million and also welcome free agent Victor Valdes.

Jack Grealish is a very coveted youngster with alot of potential and Zola puts him in very high regard.'Jack is a very good player with bags of potential and maybe in the future he can be a very good player in this league and maybe in the world, when you see him play you will see a future superstar.

Victor Valdes also joins after being a free agent since leaving Barcelona when his contract ran out at the end of a season. A lot of premier league teams were after him but he was impressed by Chelsea and joined them.

Zola said'He is a very good player and now we have maybe 3 of the top 5 goalkeepers in the league so we have very good strength in depth and we know whoever we put in goal we know they can do a good job.

Pre Season Watch

Chelsea played a few pre season games lets see how they got on:

They started off with a very comfortable game against the Chelsea under 21s with a 3-0 win. they then travelled to Germany to play HSV who had recently appointed Dutch Legend Marco van Basten and beat them 2-0. They then travelled to Chivas where they were severely beaten but they were fielding their young team. they travelled back to London and beat Leverkusen 5-2 in a fantastic game. They then travelled to the Netherlands where they beat Vitesse Arnham 5-1. Vitesse are Chelsea's feeder club. They then travelled to China to play Qingdao and Jiangsu where both teams were beaten comfortably.

Manager's thoughts

I think my team played well winning 6 out of 7 is good but the game we lost even though we were resting players we played very poorly. We scored many goals,20 goals to be exact and conceded 4 which is also good. Many of my players played well and our players have got high morale.

Player of Pre-Season

Felipe Luis gets this award for being our most consistent defender and helped the club concede very less goal. The game he didn't play we lost and he was important to our side. He always had a rating above 7.50.
Jamesg237- thanks for the advice
Not sure that I fully agree with what you are doing, as a chelsea fan myself, but anyway :P

The updates could have more detail, but it is a good start :)
