Gianfranco Zola ‘deserves another crack’ at West Ham – David Gold
• ‘I would hope Franco stays,’ says Hammers co-chairman
• ‘It has been a very difficult season for him,’ admits David Gold
The West Ham co-chairman David Gold wants Gianfranco Zola to continue as manager, despite a poor season in which they seem to have narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship.
The Hammers beat Wigan 3-2 on Saturday and the win moved them six points clear of Hull with two games to go, and with a far superior goal difference they are almost assured of avoiding the drop.
But Gold believes Zola deserves to stay on. “I would hope Franco stays,” Gold told the Daily Express. “He has been through hell and back.
“It has been a very difficult season for him. Now he knows he is part of West Ham and he deserves another crack.”
