|8/1||Rafa Benitez is 8/1 with Paddy Power to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked
"I have been dreaming of becoming a good manager, one who can lead a team like Chelsea," Zola told France Football.
"I work really hard for it. I do not know if I will [manage Chelsea]. I think I have the abilities but I do not think I am good enough yet.
"It is only my second coaching experience in a club after West Ham. I still have a lot to do.
"I am really pleased by the plans [at Watford]. I know how serious the Pozzo family are. This is the best place I could have found to develop as a coach."
Rafa Benitez is currently Chelsea’s interim manager following the sacking of Zola’s former club and international team-mate Roberto Di Matteo.
