Watford ambition attracted Zola

Published Add your comment

Gianfranco Zola admits the opportunity to take Watford "to a different level" attracted him to the club.

The former Chelsea forward was appointed as manager of the npower Championship side on a two-year deal following the sacking of Sean Dyche. The move was made by Watford's new owners, the Pozzo family. The Italians also own Serie A side Udinese and La Liga outfit Granada, but Zola insists Watford will not become a feeder club for the latter.

He said: "When you see what Udinese have achieved in the last few years it is quite amazing. It is a small club, it has been in the Champions League for a while and they keep producing players and remain competitive. That is the policy of the club but I have been assured and I can assure that they want to take Watford to a different level."
