West Ham boss Zola: No need to buy big

West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola insists he'd prefer to develop his own talent than buy big. "I like working with this team. When I first came here I was told that I was going to work with this team and I tried to make things better," he said. "I am not thinking about anything else. Anything else that comes will be an extra bonus. My task here is to work with the players and improve them. "It will be easier to spend £20million on that player or £30million on that player but improving players is what I enjoy about the job.
