Gianfranco Zola: "Government Provisions Regarding Coronavirus Must ...Former Chelsea assistant coach, Gianfranco Zola, has revealed that Real Madrid forward, Eden Hazard, was “bored” during his time at Stamford Bridge because of former Blues manager, Maurizio Sarri’s coaching style.

Hazard left Chelsea last summer for La Liga giant, Real Madrid after leading the West London club to win the UEFA Europa League trophy.

Speaking with beIN Sports, Zola said, “They were talented players, like Hazard and Willian.

The first leg ended with a win for Chelsea in Amsterdam, so it was no surprise as the match started at a hectic pace, as Tammy Abraham scored against his own team with an erroneous  touch from Ajax Promes free kick after just two minutes.

Chelsea then almost swiftly equalised from the penalty spot through former Chelsea coach Maurizio Saree’s protege Jorginho, but Dutch champions Ajax were soon back ahead through attacker Quincy Promes. Ajax then increased their lead when Hakim Ziyech’s amazing free kick went in after hitting the bar and then slamming Kepa Arrizabalaga’s face before going into the net.

Ajax star, Donny van de Beek made it 4-1 after the first half, before Ajax were then reduced to nine men as Daley Blind and Joel Veltman were both given second yellow cards resulting in Jorginho’s goal from the penalty spot.
Academy graduate Reece James then completed the comeback to 4-4 before Cesar Azpilicueta scored, but Azpilicueta’s goal was then ruled out.
