FOOTBALL fans were left in fits of laughter when the diminutive Gianfranco Zola lined up alongside giant Peter Crouch during BT Sport’s Saturday afternoon coverage.
Chelsea legend Zola was at Anfield to cover Liverpool vs Watford – the lunchtime kick-off as Premier League football returned following the international break.
And viewers had some fun at his expense after he was flanked by fellow pundits Crouch and Rio Ferdinand.
The two former England internationals stand at 6ft 7in and 6ft 3in respectively – with Zola at just 5ft 6in.
BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey was also stood alongside the three former footballers and he is also well over 6ft.
This height disparity led floods of people on social media to get involved in the gentle ribbing of Zola.
One said: “Should’ve bought him a step ladder ffs it’s peak.”
Another added: “Crouchie is trying his best to look smaller…knees apart and a bit bent….looks so funny tho! 🤣🤣”
And a third simply replied: “They did him nasty.”
Zola may be lacking in height, but that did not stop him becoming a Stamford Bridge legend during his seven seasons there as a player.
