Gianfranco Zola Asked Chelsea's Bench To Sit Down So Fans Could Watch Pens

Gianfranco Zola Asked Chelsea's Bench To Sit Down So Fans Could Watch Pens

Gianfranco Zola kept up his nice guy reputation last night when he asked Chelsea substitutes to crouch down so the fans could watch the penalty shoot-out against Spurs.

Those on the touchline were stood and anxiously awaiting the penalties but were obstructing the view of the home fans in the stands because there were so many of them.

And so Blues legend Zola, now back at the club as Maurizio Sarri's assistant, stepped in to tell the players to get down on their haunches so the Stamford Bridge faithful could see.

In a video posted by a fan on social media, the 52-year old can be seen gesturing to the subs and the gesture was well and truly appreciated by supporters.

Even in a high-pressure scenario, Zola was thinking of the fans and they would see their side win 4-2 on penalties to set up a final with holder Manchester City at Wembley.

Spurs had a 1-0 lead from the first leg thanks to Harry Kane's penalty but it was Chelsea who turned it on in the first half of the second leg, with goals from N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard putting them 2-0 up - a scoreline they were good value for based on their performance.

The visitors were struggling without key players Heung-Min-Son, Dele Alli and Kane in the opening 45 minutes but Fernando Llorente bagged a brave and brilliant header from a pinpoint Danny Rose cross five minutes into the second half to level the tie on aggregate.

And so the game went straight to penalties, where Eric Dier could not replicate his World Cup heroics and instead blazed the ball high into the stands.

Lucas Moura also missed, with Kepa guessing right and denying the Brazilian, before David Luiz converted Chelsea's fourth, and more importantly, crucial spot-kick to send Chelsea to a 15th final in 16 seasons.
