Watford boss Zola has no West Ham grudge

Gianfranco Zola is happy with his lot at Watford.

Zola is in his second management post, having been sacked at the end of the 2010 season by West Ham.

He told the Mail on Sunday: "I am not a guy who can hold grudges,' he said. 'West Ham was a difficult experience, tough for somebody like me in his first job. I was managing a Premier League team with a lot of responsibilities. I knew how to handle the players on the pitch but outside the pitch is quite different. I made some mistakes but I think I did a lot of good things.

"I took the hard road, but the experience I have from two years managing West Ham is worth five, or more, years of normal experience."
