WATCH: The Gianfranco Zola Goal That Reminds You Why You Love Football

Posted by

Occasionally there’s a goal that reminds you why you love football so much and Gianfranco Zola’s stunning volleyed flick against Norwich is one of them.

Zola, who had moved from Parma to Chelsea in 1996, when it was very rare for Italian players in their prime to leave Serie A, was an instant hit with the Chelsea fans as he combined being an incredible player on the pitch with a model professional off it.

Another bonus was his English was impeccable, despite allegedly having learned some choice phrases from Dennis Wise.
