Chelsea legend Zola ready to bounce back after West Ham dismissal

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola is determined to make a career in coaching.

Zola was sacked as manager of West Ham in May after a disappointing 2009-10 campaign in which the Hammers only just avoided relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

The 43-year-old is about to start a new coaching badge in England and has vowed to come back to football management stronger.

"The last year has been a difficult time in which we have had a few problems, but personally as a manager, I think I have learned a lot," he said.

"Now is the moment in which I want to work on a few things that came out and then come back stronger, so I am looking forward to this new course."
