Kicking and ice-creaming
Mon 30 November 2015, 4:01 pm
Chelsea Football Club legend, Gianfranco Zola, has opened an “Italian-style ice cream and coffee parlour” in Bromley High Street.
Zola had a successful career with Chelsea during the 1990s and is considered one of the club’s most popular former players among fans. He moved to Bromley when he was West Ham United’s manager between 2008 and 2010.
The shop opened in November 2015 and fellow former Chelsea players: Dennis Wise, Andriy Shevchenko and Roberto Di Matteo – who also managed the club during the season that Chelsea won the Champions League in 2012 – were in attendance at the launch.
Zola told the Chelsea website: “The main reason Italian ice cream is so good is we make it fresh every day and we always choose good quality products. Italians love ice cream and because we love it we put a lot of attention into it.”
