Gianfranco Zola Joined by Other Ex-Chelsea Men For Ice Cream Parlour Launch

Gianfranco Zola was joined by Andriy Shevchenko, Roberto Di Matteo and Dennis Wise as he helped launch an ice cream parlour in London yesterday.

Unico Gelato and Caffe opened up in Bromley and had no problem attracting some of Chelsea’s best former stars.

The Stamford Bridge hero is a co-founder of the ice cream franchise and brought along some of his old friends for the grand opening.

Fans queued outside ahead of Zola launching Unico.

Some press and fans took the opportunity to attend, with many grabbing pictures with Zola, Shevchenko and co.

Even National League side Bromley were in attendance, with assistant manager Neil Smith taking a strip with Zola’s name on it as a present – and failed bid to sign the 49-year-old:

Zola was taking time out from his job as manager of Qatar side Al-Arabi to help with the Unico launch.

He’s not worked in the UK since being sacked by Watford in 2013, but you can be sure he’ll be back in the country regularly now the ice cream parlour is open.
