Crazy Ball – Gianfranco Zola said that Chelsea have the quality to reach the level of Liverpool and Manchester City. He believes his former club can challenge for the title.
As is known, the Blues last season managed to finish fourth in the Premier League standings under the direction of Frank Lampard. Interestingly, the coach relies on a number of young players such as Tammy Abraham to Mason Mount.
After being quite successful last season, Lampard was given large funds by Chelsea to bring in the players he wanted. From this large amount of money they were able to get signatures like Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. As a result, the club from West London is predicted to pose a threat to Liverpool and Manchester City, who have recently been dominant in the Premier League in the 2020/21 season.
However, London Blue is currently still in seventh place in the standings after only being able to win two wins in four matches. Worse yet, they had to give up 2-0 at home to the Reds at Stamford Bridge.
With four inconsistent games, Chelsea's camp is starting to doubt it can win the Premier League this season. However, Gianfranco Zola is very optimistic they have the quality to challenge the title and for him Frank Lampard has brought in the right player.
Talk to Sky Sports, Gianfranco Zola says they have spent a lot of money and he thinks Lampard as a coach has spent it very well this summer.
According to him, Chelsea have bought quality players. Now, the coach's job is only to integrate him into a team with existing players and make him a winning team. For him, the club he played for had many young players and Gianfranco Zola hopes that they can help the team achieve positive results.
Zola also revealed that reaching levels like Liverpool and Manchester City will not be easy. However, if Chelsea are willing to work hard, he is optimistic that his former club can reach the levels shared by the Reds and The Citizens.
