Chelsea encouraged as Zenit coach Spalletti confesses England ambition

Zenit St Petersburg coach Luciano Spalletti admits he wants to work in England.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the Italian and believes he would succeed in the Premier League.

Spalletti said: "I am with Zenit. I just found an agreement to renew with the President. In my future I see myself in England."

Chelsea chiefs are monitoring the situation, where Spalletti is being considered as an alternative to Pep Guardiola. The Italian has led Zenit to untold title glory since joining from AS Roma - and all under the nose of Blues owner Roman Abramovich.
