'Zidane Will Fit for Chelsea, Good for the Premier League'
Zinedine Zidane is associated with Chelsea. The Frenchman is believed to be right for the Blues and good for the Premier League.
Zidane was linked with Chelsea following a difficult moment experienced by the club manager, Maurizio Sarri. The inconsistency of Chelsea lately has made Sarri's future questionable.
Before arranging a winning streak from Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, Chelsea had previously only won three times out of seven matches with the rest losing. In those four defeats, they were beaten by Bournemouth (0-4) and Manchester City (0-6) in the Premier League.
West London children are still in sixth place in the standings, two points ahead of Manchester United in fourth place (Champions League zone limits). Chelsea were also kicked out by Manchester United after losing 0-2, followed by a penalty shoot-out from City in the English League Cup final.
Appeared Sarri's suspicion of losing the game's confidence, so that Chelsea's performance was affected. If Chelsea choose to take it off, Zidane is named right by former France midfielder Robert Pires.
"It's a very strange situation at Chelsea and how they treat their manager. Sarri is a very good manager and works very well at Napoli. But it's hard to see him stay at this club (Chelsea) next season," he told BWin.
"There seems to be a lot of player strength at Chelsea that is difficult to overcome, as many previous managers have experienced," he added.
One thing that makes Zidane the right candidate for Chelsea is his big name. This legendary figure won many titles as a player and as a coach. His arrival will enliven the competition of top managers in the Premier League, which currently contains Pep Guardiola, Juergen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, and Unai Emery.
"I think Zidane will be a very good choice for Chelsea. He will demand respect from the Chelsea players and control the dressing room, as a result of everything he has achieved as a player and manager," said Zidane's former teammate.
"He is a winner and fighter. He has had great success in the Champions League which is interesting for Chelsea owners. It will be good news for the Premier League if Zidane moves to England," Pires said.
