Zola: once upon a time in Sardinia
Season 1984-85. For the first time in their history, the Nuorese Calcio plays on a professional football championship: Italian Serie C2 (the same of English League Two).
A new star starts his career in that team from Sardinia, a boy of 18, not tall or muscular but very talented.
His name is Gianfranco Zola.
You can see him in the picture below, he is the fourth one knelt from the left.
The story of “Magic Box“, the Watford trainer, starts from here.
