WEST Ham boss Gianfranco Zola has vowed to stay on as Hammers boss to try and guide the club to Premier League safety.

Zola admitted he was considering his future as manager following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Stoke and returned to his home in Sardinia to mull over his future.

But Zola has now decided to stay and believes the squad has enough to climb away from the relegation zone.

“I am determined to carry on,” he said. “Losing on Saturday was emotional for everyone but I know we can turn it around and we have the ability to achieve our objectives.”
