Zola's Breach Of Contract
So the official line is that Zola has been sacked for breach of contract. Apparently by voicing public criticism of Sullivan, he was in breach of a contract written by Duxbury; and that is plausible because we all know how, under the Grand Puppet Master, everybody sang from the same hymn sheet! How deliciously ironic it would be if Zola’s mate, Duxbury, has inadvertently provided the ammunition for Sullivan to fire at the Italian!
Sullivan and Gold have been very careful to publicly support Zola. Time and again, they have said that he has their support and that he would be West Ham’s manager for years to come. We all knew that it was bullshit but it is now a matter of public record, as are Zola’s statements that he did not want to be involved in transfer dealings. S&G will say that they took him at his word, so his criticism of the owners for not consulting him about the Dorans bid, and the possible sale of players, was unacceptable. Who knows, he may already have been warned after his “unhelpful” comments following Sullivan’s email after the Wolves debacle.
It looks as if the lawyers are in for another pay day. With any luck, given his track record, Duxbury will offer to represent his old mate Zola!
