During his playing career, Zola was primarily used as a supporting striker or as a playmaking attacking midfielder, due to his ability to create chances and provide assists for team-mates; he was also deployed as a winger or even as a striker on occasion.

A creative and technically gifted player, Zola was renowned for his ball control, his skillful dribbling ability, vision, and passing ability, as well as his tactical intelligence and eye for goal

I think Zola was by far the best footballer for Chelsea due to his all those skills. He was like the Maradona of Chelsea everyone expected him to do something spectacular and most of the time he did.

6. John Terry – Defender
