Football: How to Play

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola is one of the most skilful players to ever play in the Premier League.

Last Updated: 04/04/13 at 13:25 Post Comment

The Italian, now managing Championship promotion contenders Watford, wowed the Stamford Bridge crowd between 1996-2003, combining breathtaking skill with some lethal finishing, with a mid-air back heel against Norwich in 2002 one of many standout moments.

And the diminutive former frontman has decided to show those new to football, or those determined to improve their current level of play, how to pull off some of the game's basic manoeuvres.

Hit the video above to see the former Napoli, Parma and Cagliari star run you through how to take the perfect penalty and free-kick and explain the art of the volley.

Zola's demo is part Get Involved's look at football. So far we've shown you how to participate, tracked down some Local Heroes and explained how you can stay involved in the sport. To check out our previous episodes simply click this link.
