â€śSometimes when Cole is holding up the ball he reminds me of Mark Hughes," said Zola. â€śHughes was fantastic at holding and protecting the ball.
â€śCarlton is close to him but also very fast. He needs to improve his finishing a little bit but heâ€™s on the way.
â€śIâ€™ve had to put my arm around his shoulders â€” well, I think I did but heâ€™s a bit too tall so maybe it was his waist!
â€śThatâ€™s because Carlton is certainly one of those players who doesnâ€™t know how good he is. Simple as that. But because Iâ€™ve seen so many different players up close I can realise what kind of players I have in front of me.
â€śHeâ€™s getting better and better. For me he is not near his peak.â€ť
