Jokanovic admits ex-Chelsea pal Zola convinced him about Watford

Slavisa Jokanovic admits Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola convinced him about taking the Watford.

If Jokanovic had any doubts about taking the job they were allayed by a chat with old Chelsea team-mate Gianfranco Zola, who resigned as Watford boss in December after a poor run.

"Gianfranco is a great guy," Jokanovic told the London Evening Standard. "He explained to me that you are in the right place at the right time. Now it depends on me and the people around me."
