There has been talk of Chelsea sacking the 48-year-old at the end of the season. But fellow Italian Zola is backing Conte to turn things around at the west London club.
“It is easy to say Antonio Conte is not happy," Zola told BBC Sport.
“He is a winner, and has always been like that since he was a player.
“He wants things to go his way and right now they are not, so he cannot hide his disappointment.
“I genuinely think he is a good fit for Chelsea, one of the best coaches around.
“And as I want the best for Chelsea so hope his stays. There are a few issues, but hopefully they solve them."
