Zola puts up with interference
West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola has dismissed suggestions that club co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan have interfered with team matters at Upton Park.
The former Birmingham City supremos keep a close eye on all areas of the club, but Zola is not concerned that they might start to try to influence his selections.
He commented: “They never have done that. They like to know, they like me to explain what we are trying to do. I like that. They have been very good.
“One of the owners comes to see the preparation (on match days). I think that’s normal. There’s nothing wrong with that.
“I have no problem with that. It’s not an issue. I like it when they come here and see what we are doing, so they can keep an eye on what we do.
“I don’t spend much time worrying about my future. My future depends on what I can give. My focus is on making sure I give 100 per cent focus and then que sera, sera.
“I can try hard and try to do a good job and maybe the situation is not correct and things don’t go very well. In that case, I cannot do anything.
“But it doesn’t stop me working hard and being honest for the people I’m working for.”
