Gianfranco ZolaWest Ham have just announced, on their official website, that they sacked their Italian coach Gianfranco Zola. Gianfranco Zola’s job has been on the edge since Gold and Sullivan bought the majority of the clubs’ shares. Gianfranco Zola will definitely feel unlucky as throughout his stay at West Ham the club was passing through various administrative issues which affected West Ham’s moves in the transfer market and also the motivation of the squad. Even though Zola had to cope with those happenings, he still managed to avoid relegation to the Championship for two years in a row. During his stay at West Ham he also helped various players grow in their career such as Carlton Cole and Alessandro Diamanti.

Zola’s coaching career started in 2006 when he was appointed as assistant to Italy national under-21 national team head coach and former Italy and Chelsea teammate Pierluigi Casiraghi. After a 2 year stint he decided that it was time to move on and was unveiled as West Ham’s manager on the 11th of September 2008. This move took everyone by surprise as Zola was a fan favourite at their London rivals, Chelsea. Nonethless his relationship with Chelsea fans is still great and received applause by Chelsea fans everytime he visited Stamford Bridge.
