Watford to appoint Zola

ESPN staff

New Watford owner Giampaolo Pozzo has revealed Gianfranco Zola has verbally agreed to take charge of the club.

Pozzo completed his takeover of Championship club Watford last week and it had been reported that former West Ham United manager Zola would be appointed to replace current boss Sean Dyche

Asked about Zola, Pozzo told Sky Italia: "We are on the right path and, hence, I believe he will be our new coach. We have a verbal agreement.

"The English coaches are different to that of the Italians in terms of managing. Before deciding on the coach we needed time. My son will be in London as well tomorrow and there should be no problem."

Pozzo, who is also the owner of Italian side Udinese and Spanish club Granada, added: "We are trying to revive a historic club and to bring it back to the Premier League."
