On Porcu and Brignardello, Zola added: "Gianni's credentials come before him.

"He has always worked with good teams and he's doing a good job so far. In the first few days he has confirmed all the good things that have been told to us.

"I look forward to working with Bastiano in the future and know he will add quality to our staff at Watford."
