He continued: "I think Zidane would be a very good appointment at Chelsea".
Meanwhile Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri opted to restore Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, having dropped the Spain global for the win over Tottenham following his refusal to be substituted during the Carabao Cup final. "I think it's very important to move on quickly from that". While it is certainly unfortunate the Blues left Wembley without a trophy, this game saw Chelsea play its best overall match in recent memory.
It was Parker's first game in charge following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, a former Chelsea manager, after less than four months in charge.
'Jorginho has a very strong character, a very strong personality, ' Sarri said. In the last 20 or 25 minutes we were in trouble because we were very exhausted mentally and physically after 120 minutes against Manchester City and a strong match against Tottenham. His reaction today was really very good. "He understood the mistake so he was able to react very well", Sarri said.
Man United are hoping to secure more additions so as to strengthen the team ahead of next season.
"He was really very exhausted in the last part of the match, and we were lucky that [Mateo] Kovacic could come on and do really very well". So we were trying to organise in the best way the next pre-season.
