I didn't fit in at West Ham, claims Donadoni

Former Italy coach Roberto Donadoni has revealed he withdrew from the race to become West Ham manager believing he was not the right fit for the club.

Donadoni, who was dismissed by the Azzurri following their quarter-final defeat on penalties to Spain at Euro 2008, was a candidate to take over the east London club following the departure of Alan Curbishley but withdrew on Tuesday with Gianfranco Zola emerging as the favourite.

"I decided to take my name out of the race because the feeling was that of not being the right fit for the type of programme they (West Ham) had in mind,'' Donadoni told

"I want to thank the London club. It gives me great honour to have been considered for the position.''

Donadoni, who is currently unemployed after two years in charge of Italy, has not ruled out coaching in England in the future.

"I don't exclude this possibility,'' he said. "The Premier League is a thrilling competition that has a lot of value.''
