West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola insists he never considered returning to Chelsea after the axing of Luiz Felipe Scolari.

"I am here and that's the important thing. That's all I can say about that," Zola noted.

"[Chelsea] is a club that I wish they do very well and I think Clarkey (Steve Clarke) feels the same, but I would like to talk about West Ham."

The former Italy Under-21 coach continued: "I am very happy with what I am doing here.

"We have a project and we are still starting.

"There is a long way to go and I have got a lot to learn and a lot to give to the club."
