Zola: Juventus midfielder Pjanic most like me

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola admits he's a big fan of Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

Juve meet Torino in the Turin derby tonight.

Zola said, “Ljajic isn't as powerful with his set plays, but he does always find some marvellous trajectories. In terms of style, his free kicks are similar to those of Roberto Baggio.

“However, one of the best free kick specialists in the world right now is Pjanic. He's probably the player I see myself in the most. He hits it a little harder than I did, but mine were extremely precise. When I made contact with the ball and looked up, I immediately knew if I had scored or not. I scored first with my eyes and then my feet.

“The most dangerous Pjanic free kick is around 10 metres outside the box."
