The Italian believes Andrea Belotti - one of the many strikers linked with a move to Stamford Bridge - could do "great things" in England.

"He's [Diego Costa is] a huge player, capable of doing everything," Zola told Italian told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"But it's true that he's quite complicated to manage.
