Watford boss Gianfranco Zola reacts to Football Discplinary Commission outcome
Gianfranco Zola admits he is “relieved” Watford will not be deducted points after a discplinary commission came to what he described as the “correct decision” following the club's and former owner Laurence Bassini's Football League hearing.
Bassini and the Hornets were charged following alleged breaches of the Football League’s regulations and the club’s former owner has subsequently been banned from any participation in football for three years.
Other possible penalties, including a fine or a points deduction, were not imposed however and Zola believes the right outcome in that regard has been reached.
“I am relieved about the decision,” the Hornets head coach said.
“I think it is the correct decision too because this group hasn’t got anything to do with the past.
“I don’t think the issue has affected the players at all.”
