Zola 'Flattered' By Sunderland Link

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola has claimed he's flattered with being linked to the vacant Sunderland position, but insists he want to see through his project at the Hornets.

Speaking to Sky Sports the Italian said;

Of course I am flattered that I have been considered but I am really happy over here and like what I am doing. I think my growth as a manager has been massive and so I want to fulfil this task that I will be here.

The 47-year old former Chelsea star has been considered an outsider for the position since Paolo Di Canio left on Sunday night, and these comments will lead most to believe he's now even more unlikely to take up a post at Sunderland.

Having failed to hit the high-notes at West Ham United, it seems unlikely any Sunderland fan will be too disheartened to hear that Zola has effectively ruled himself out of coming to the North East.
