Zola refuses to discuss future until next week
Saturday 08 May 2010
Gianfranco Zola's future at Upton Park remains a matter of speculation but the West Ham manager will not discuss the issue until his meeting with club owners David Gold and David Sullivan next week.
Zola successfully negotiated a turbulent campaign to keep West Ham in the Premier League and a victory over Manchester City tomorrow could see them finish as high as 14th. "I need to focus on the game and then I will talk to the club and we will see what the outcome is going to be. We are going to meet some time next week," Zola said yesterday. "I am a professional person. I am paid by the club to do a job and I try to do it as best I can.
"I'm not going to give any excuses, we should have done better this season. I was expecting more. But I have to add that the circumstances and the environment have not been easy and people should remember that."
