West Ham boss Zola confident he won't be forced into Bellamy sale

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola is confident he has agreement with his board that Craig Bellamy will not be sold.

"It's a pity he is suspended because he's going through a very good spell," he said. "When he plays the way he's playing he's very important for us.

"Me, (technical director) Gianluca Nani and (chief executive) Scott Duxbury have a total understanding and are working together as a team.

"There's so much speculation but as far as I'm concerned he's our player. It's as simple as that.

"Now we have a match on Saturday and we have to focus on winning because if we don't it will cancel out what we did against Portsmouth."
