Zola to Sign Three Year Contract
Gianfrance Zola has agreed to sign a three year contract to become the new West Ham manager. Zola is due to fly to the UK tomorrow to put pen to paper on a deal that will see Zola unveiled as manager before the weekend.
A club source told the BBC,
"Gianfranco was our first choice. We were very comfortable with the three options we had - Zola, Donadoni and Collins - but Gianfranco came out on top.
His English is very good and he can talk about football with English players and inspire them. He has a record of developing young footballers, which is very important to us, and was obviously a world-class player.
Experienced players like to have a manager they can respect as a footballer."
