Gianfranco Zola insists that he is focused on leading Watford to promotion to the Premier League and is not eyeing the Chelsea managerial job.

Watford manager Gianfranco Zola has played down reports suggesting that he could replace Rafael Benitez as the Chelsea boss at the end of the season.

The Italian played for the Premier League club between 1996 and 2003, winning the FA Cup twice and the League Cup once.

"I'm really enjoying what I'm doing over here," he told talkSPORT.

"To be honest, I am more concerned with what will happen between now and the end of the season, which is going to make a big difference for me. My focus and attention is on Watford."

Zola became the Watford manager in July 2012.
