Wilkins said: "He's won it twice as a manager and I'm sure Roman [Abramovich] will have been knocking on his shell about it. He'll want to win it again. Carlo's got bundles of experience and has worked with world-class footballers. He'll be doing the same with us. He'll enjoy working with this squad.
"I've spoken to him twice since his appointment and his English is very good and with my broken Italian we can get by. He's an emotional guy and he'll want to get his ideas across but he won't have a problem. We're looking for a bit of stability and we want Carlo to be successful and with us for as long as he can."
