Watford appoint Zola
Watford have appointed former West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola as their new manager following the completion of an Italian-backed takeover.
New owner Giampaolo Pozzo had announced that Zola was set to take charge of the Championship club on a two-year contract, with last season's manager Sean Dyche sacked earlier in the week.
"Everyone knows how Gianfranco Zola likes football to be played," Watford technical director Gianluca Nani told the club's official website. "I think Watford's fans can expect an exciting and attacking style from his team. Gianfranco represents this project perfectly."
