Arguably one of the most talented stars ever to play in the Premier League, Zola is thankfully back in England managing Watford. Here the little Sardinian reveals which teams he believes play the beautiful game and why he’s not missing the top flight.
Topman Generation: As one of the most stylish players ever to grace the Premier League, which teams do you think are playing the beautiful game right now?
Zola: You don’t really need me to say this first one, it’s pretty obvious, that’s an easy choice! Other than Barcelona, another team I really like at the moment is Bayern Munich. I believe they play such good football going forward, it’s very geometrical and the ball is always going forward and on the floor. It’s a good way to play football. I watched them on a few occasions last season and I really enjoyed it, I really wasn't surprised when they made the Champions League final. Borussia Dortmund are another team we should look out for in Europe as we saw against Manchester City, they play brilliant football and they excite me a lot.
Topman Generation: As a manager, how hard is it to make teams play stylish football?
Zola: For me it’s easy because I see the way football should be played in my head. If they don’t immediately understand then it is easier for me to explainbecause I know exactly what direction I want them to go in.
