Published Add your comment

Gianfranco Zola will become the manager of Watford, according to new club owner Giampaolo Pozzo.

Pozzo, owner of Serie A side Udinese and Primera Liga outfit Granada, completed the takeover of the Championship club last week from Laurence Bassini.

"The Watford deal was conducted by my son (Gino), who works a lot in London," Pozzo told Sky Italia. "We are trying to revive a historic club and to bring it back to the Premier League. Zola? We are on the right path and hence, I believe he will be our new coach. We have a verbal agreement."
