'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Zola concentrating on Watford despite Chelsea talk

Hornet's Head Coach Gianfranco Zola says he is concentrating on the job on hand with Watford, despite being linked with the Chelsea job.

Current Blues' interim manager Rafael Benitez is still very much in a job at Stamford Bridge but that hasn't stopped the press linking former Chelsea favourite with a return to the club.

Zola made 312 appearances for the west Londoners in seven years at Stamford Bridge, scoring 80 goals in the process.

Earlier in the campaign Zola had admitted that he would be interested in the Chelsea job in the future but was currently committed to the 'Orns.

That didn't stop the publications in question suggesting that Zola was interested in the then-vacant position.

Speaking to BBC 3CR today following fresh speculation emanating from The Sun, Zola re-affirmed his commitment to the Golden Boys:

'To be honest I am more focused on what I have to do here,' stated Zola.

He continued: 'I know people have been writing things but my mind is completely on this job.'

Obviously we at Vital Watford are extremely biased in favour of the 'Orns, but leaving the Hornets for a club where the managerial life expectancy is as low as it is seems a particularly bad idea when Zola is yet to truly achieve anything.

If in a couple of seasons he's taken us to the Premier League and kept us up, building up his own CV in the process, and the opportunity comes knocking, then I for one would not chastise him for taking it.
