Zola denies Hammers clause

01 May 2009 - 11:24:21

West Ham United manager Gianfranco Zola has dismissed rumours suggesting that he has a get-out clause in his new Hammers contract.

The Italian has impressed since taking the reins at Upton Park earlier this season and recently put pen to paper on a new deal running until the summer of 2013.

However, some sections of the press have linked Zola with the managerial post at former club Chelsea and even suggested that a deal was part of the negotiations surrounding his fresh Irons contract.

Zola rebutted such claims by saying: "There is no get-out clause in my contract.

"I have a contract and I want to respect it and work for this club and finish the project I have started. I don't know what will happen in the future.

"Nobody knows that, but my only aim just now is to make this club as successful as possible. That is my task."
