EXCITED Chelsea fans believe Zinedine Zidane can be the miracle worker to turn the Blues into a European force once again.
Current boss Maurizio Sarri is under huge pressure following a string of humiliating results.
A 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth was followed by a 6-0 loss at champions Manchester City in their next away fixture.
It was also the first time Chelsea conceded four goals in consecutive away top-flight fixtures since 1990.
The defeat saw them drop out of the top four and into sixth – the lowest position they have occupied all season.
And with a change of direction on the horizon, SunSport exclusively revealed how Roman Abramovich will turn to Zidane.
Chelsea fans have made it no secret who they want as manager.
Zidane is currently unemployed after quitting Real Madrid on the back of consecutive Champions League wins.
One fan said: “Zidane could be the man to get the best out of Drinkwater.”
Another commented: “If it’s a real move on Zidane them am going to be proud fan of Chelsea once more.”
And a fellow Blues fan added: “Sack Sarri get Zidane, you know Hazard’s all-time favourite player.”

If Chelsea do appoint Zidane then it could also mean Eden Hazard stays at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian winger idolises the legendary playmaker, and has let it be known in the past of his desire to play under him.
And for that reason alone it appears Chelsea fans are in favour of the appointment.
In a SunSport poll, a majority 30 per cent of supporters identified Zizou as the right manager to take them forward.
