Parma boss Roberto Donadoni has likened Sebastian Giovinco to Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola.

Now a regular in the Italian national squad, Parma boss Donadoni expects the pint-sized attacker to go far.

"He's ready, really ready, for a big club," the tactician told the Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday. "He reminds me of Zola and I hope that he has the same career as Gianfranco."
