The Brazilian striker was quoted by a Brazilian journalist saying that Zola is a â€śgood personâ€ť but that he had â€ślost control of the teamâ€ť.
The story was picked up by British newspapers at the weekend but Ilan said today he had no issues with his boss.
â€śI have spoken to Gianfranco Zola and there is no problem,â€ť said the 29-year-old who signed on loan from St Etienne in January. â€śHe's a great person and really cool, you can speak to him whenever you need to. I spoke to the players and they're fine â€” they've seen this kind of thing before. We are really strong together as a group.
â€śThe important thing is we are together as a group. I will do everything I can to help West Ham and then when the season is over we will sit down and talk about the future.â€ť
