Pozzo family suggest former Chelsea forward Gianfranco Zola could join Watford

Watford Observer: Picture: Action Images Picture: Action Images

The new potential owners of Watford have indicated former Chelsea forward Gianfranco Zola could be joining the Hornets but said "it's too early to talk about it".

Sources told the Watford Observer the Pozzo family have considered Zola for the manager's position when discussing the Hornets in the past but it is unclear whether they are still considering appointing the old West Ham United boss.

The Pozzo family, who own Italian club Udinese and La Liga side Granada, have been interested in Watford for several months and it was confirmed last night that the Hornets' board of directors had agreed 'in principle' to sell the club.

Giampaolo Pozzo owns the two clubs but we understand it will be his son Gino who will be in charge of running Watford.

"There are contacts with Watford, so we'll see," Gino Pozzo told gazzetta.it.

"Gianfranco Zola enters in the project, but it's premature to talk about it."

Watford manager Sean Dyche enjoyed a successful debut season after guiding the Hornets to their highest league position in four years, with one of the Championship's lowest budgets.

If Dyche was to be replaced, it would be an unpopular decision among a lot of the Watford supporters.

He may have just been consulting on the deal.

Possibly wanted someone with knowledge of the English game to give them some advice before spending millions.

Who knows? A good man, Zola - and what a guy to have around a young squad like ours, in some capacity. Obviously don't want Dyche to go though.

I think the statement that it is 'too early' to talk about Zola suggests that he will potentially have a role at the club if the sale goes through etc.

I hope SD stays personally

But seriously anything has to be better than the current situation with Bas. We are in a better place than when he took over but if nothing happens could be in a worse place so bring on the Pozzo's and we can all get on the next roller coaster ride and see if we like it.

So far we have been in the Premier League twice after 7 & 14 years - guess what it is 21 years next year - roll on lucky 7!

It's not often I agree with *****down but from "I'm also sorry" onwards I couldn't agree more. We have a possible new owner who seems to have a decent amount of success with football clubs and much as I like Dyche if they want somebody else in then crack on. I just want my team to do well. Part of the reason he was originally interested was our academy so I imagine that's safe. Bring it on

These people have a plan that allows provincial teams without big gates to compete succesfully with the big boys.Expect to see a lot of young players with strange sounding names. When they become stars we will have to sell them...but we are used to that already.It could be a great fit and so much better than trying to work out what is going on in silly old Bas's head.
As for Zola, these people are not fools and are not going to risk their investment on sentiment. Maybe there will be a role for him but if a good Championship season is the first step in this Pozzo project dumping SD does not seem a good idea.

At this stage it is almost impossible to know what this all means in practice! If Bassini has managed to sell the club at a personal profit but also put it on a more stable footing, then surely we should all be grateful! Let's face it the previous regime failed to do this! But it's absurdly premature to be thinking we're going to be bankrolled into the Premier League.

Agreed, a Zola type wage in the club moves more than the goalposts, it will potentially change the whole set up. It could be over doing it with our income.
