The former Italy coach is set to begin work at Stamford Bridge later this month after guiding the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.

The 46-year-old also enjoyed a successful spell managing Juventus, where he guided the club to three straight Serie A titles before taking over the reins of the national team.

The former midfielder’s next port of call is West London ,where he will be hoping to return the 2014-15 Premier League champions to the top of the English game – for which they are currently on offer at 6/1 with Titanbet, after they could only achieve a tenth-place finish last season.

Del Piero is convinced his former Juventus team-mate can guide Chelsea to glory once again this season, although he expects the Premier League to be a fiercely competitive division.

“He’s a good guy, he loves to work a lot,” Del Piero told Sky Sports. “If he has a chance to talk to players in the right way, and if they understand what he wants, Chelsea can have a very good season and probably win the title.

“It’s not easy, the Premier League is amazing this year in terms of players and coaches, but he has a chance.”
