Watford ambition attracted Zola
Gianfranco Zola admits the opportunity to take Watford "to a different level" attracted him to the club.
The former Chelsea forward was appointed as manager of the npower Championship side on a two-year deal following the sacking of Sean Dyche. The move was made by Watford's new owners, the Pozzo family, who recently completed their takeover of the club from Laurence Bassini. Dyche led Watford to 11th last year, and Zola admits: "He has done a very good job so for me the task will be difficult, but it has always been like that for me. It has always been a challenge since I started playing football. "I was half of the size of the others and they said I wouldn't stand a chance to become a footballer. I took that challenge and now I have another difficult challenge. "I told the players I will give everything I have got inside to make them a little bit better and then we will see how the results (go). It is interesting. It is a challenge and I take it."
