Portsmouth boss Redknapp: West Ham ideal club for Zola

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is confident Gianfranco Zola will succeed at old club West Ham United. In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "Zola has still been lucky to get West Ham as his first job in English management. "He has inherited a squad that, left unmolested, could finish in the top 12 of the Premier League at least. "He has a technical director, Gianluca Nani, working with him who knows the Italian transfer market well. And his assistant, Steve Clarke, knows the British market.

"The next transfer window will require a lot of wheeling and dealing, as money is sparse.
