Gianfranco Zola is at the Stadio Tardini for Parma’s Centenary celebrations. “I still support them from afar.”
The Watford manager reunited with many of his former teammates for today’s huge get-together, including Tino Asprilla, Hernan Crespo, Fabio Cannavaro, Fernando Couto, Massimo Crippa and Stefano Fiore.
“What did Asprilla say to me? It’d be quicker to list what he didn’t say!” joked Zola on Parma Channel.
“I am very happy to see everyone again. I’ve been watching Parma and saw their game against Fiorentina, when they really impressed me. I still support them from afar.
“Looking back, my most important goal in a Parma jersey was against Giovanni Trapattoni’s Juventus.”
Zola is due to play in today’s Centenary match, though he admits his fitness levels aren’t what they used to be.
“How long can I play? About five or six minutes! I’d love to play alongside Antonio Cassano, as he’s a real champion.”
