Gianfranco Zola

When you see the Gianfranco Zola smile, there is little you can do other than join the millions of others who think him a thoroughly lovely bloke.

Zola is a Chelsea legend and one of the most talented foreign stars to have switched to the Premier League - he is also well known for being a genuinely nice man. This is a significant for a former player at a club that isn't always the most popular among rival fans.

You would be hard pressed to find a person that would say they really disliked him and not be lying - come on, he always smiling, is always nice to people and is tiny!
