Dennis Wise was better than Diego Maradona, says Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola
Diego Maradona’s footballing ability was put to shame by Dennis Wise. That’s according to Gianfranco Zola, who played with both of them.
We suspect that Zola immediately clocked on to OTP’s mischievous line of questioning when we asked him which of the pair was the better player.
He told OTP: “I think Dennis Wise was much better technically. I would have wanted to have seen him a little bit more aggressive on the pitch and then we would have had the perfect player.”
As we say, we think he might have been joining in the banter but we have no way of verifying this. It may well be his honest opinion.
