West Ham chief Fridgeirsson: Zola must sell before buying

West Ham United vice-chairman Asgeir Fridgeirsson admits manager Gianfranco Zola must sell to fund his own transfer plans. "Our manager agrees it is not necessary for the squad to be that size so for further transfers the money would need to be generated from sales," said Fridgeirsson. "There is no intention for him to invest further in the club at the moment. The club is standing strong, it is generating revenue and Mr Gudmundsson is not going to take money out of the club."
