Gianfranco Zola surprised by Tomori revelation at Chelsea

Frank Lampard has created a revolution at Chelsea.

Ever since the club legend came back, there has been a breath of fresh air at the club. The players have performed and the club has invested heavily in youth talent by trusting them.

The likes of Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Reece James, Billy Gilmour and Callum Hudson-Odoi have all come through and are flying in Chelsea colors.

Former Blues assistant boss Gianfranco Zola who was removed from his post before the new season began has now revealed that he is pleasantly surprised by one Chelsea player in particular. 

“Mason Mount is not surprising me because I saw the videos of him playing in Holland and Derby. He needed to adapt but there was always a big potential,” Zola said on Soccer AM.

“I’m not surprised about Tammy (Abraham). When we had him he was a raw talent but I loved the attitude and positivity. They have all got a great attitude.”

“Chelsea have been amazing this season. There have been a few (players) that have been impressing me,” Zola added.

“(Fikayo) Tomori is one of the players. Last year we had him in the pre-season and we couldn’t see all the qualities that he is showing now. That is a surprise and a big lesson for us and me personally as well. They are going beyond my expectations.”
