Chelsea legend Zola: Abramovich wants Blues to play like Barcelona

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola says owner Roman Abramovich wants his team to play like Barcelona.

Zola believes Andre Villas- Boas deserved more time at the helm of the Premier League club.

"I think what Chelsea want to do is to change their style of play," he told El Pais. "The idea of Barca's football appeals to everyone, and also them.

"However, with Villas-Boas, they had no patience in terms of the results, which were not considered up to expectations."
