Chelsea captain John Terry has backed former teammate Gianfranco Zola for the West Ham United job.

Terry said on Setanta Sports News: "I'm sure one day he'll be back at Chelsea but he's managed the Under-21s in Italy for a while and he's got a little bit more experience.

"It would be great for him and Gigi (Pierluigi Casiraghi) to maybe get that job, get more experience, and hopefully get the chance to one day become the Chelsea manager."
