A BRAND NEW SERIES OF FAST-MOVING, GOAL-GRABBING SOCCER CELEBRATIONS
Before his arrival at Chelsea in November 1996, Gianfranco Zola was best known for his playing alongside Maradona, yet in just one season, he has captured the hearts of the English footballing public through the force of sheer skill. Zola is one of the greatest soccer imports of all time.
Sardinian marvel 'GIANFRANCO ZOLA' is relatively new to the English football scene. Enticed from Parma by Chelsea’s £4.5 million offer, he is rapidly making a huge name for himself at Stamford Bridge, as well as continuing to play for Italy as one of their star players. The 5’5’’ maestro is known throughout the footballing world for his expertise and shooting, dribbling and passing skills. Often compared to great friend, former team mate and mentor Diego Maradona, Zola has brought an Italian flavour to the English game and new life to Chelsea.
The pure genius of Zola’s playing and the magnetism of his game have created an enormous fan following for the man whose skill with the Italian team helped towards England’s first ever defeat in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley. he has gained the loyalty of Chelsea fans and seems set to go from strength to strength in English football.
