Chelsea enlist Gianfranco Zola to front the search for new FIFA 19 player

Chelsea are looking for a new star player to represent them. But this player won’t be taking to the field at Stamford Bridge under the watchful eye of Maurizio Sarri. Instead, this new recruit will be the club’s representative in the ePremier League FIFA Tournament starting early next year.

The Blues announced their search with a video released on YouTube, with club legend and current assistant manager Gianfranco Zola explaining how Chelsea need a gamer for the upcoming season, but will only accept a “top, top, top” player.

The video goes on to show various footballers playing FIFA against a mystery gamer called CheatMode_91. The anonymous competitor beats all-comers, and the video closes with a call for fans to prove that they’re better than CheatMode_91.

The tournament will be comprised of online preliminary rounds, live playoffs for each club, and then the ePremier League Final. The registration for the tournament has already opened, and if you think you’re just the person Chelsea – or any other club – are looking for, you can sign up here!
