Zola keen on Ghana job

Ghana Football Association vice-president Fred Pappoe has confirmed that Gianfranco Zola has handed in an application for the vacant Black Stars post.

Zola, who began his coaching career as assistant to Italy Under-21 boss Pierluigi Casiraghi, spent two years in charge of West Ham United in the Premier League but was dismissed at the end of last season.

Following Milovan Rajevac's decision to step down earlier this month, the Ghana FA has now received over 60 applications from European coaches and Pappoe said on Ghanasoccernet: "I have cited his (Zola's) application."

Ghana-born former France international Marcel Desailly is still believed to be a serious contender for the position and has rejected widespread rumours that he is making excessive financial demands.

A statement on his behalf read: "Marcel has not been on any platform or in any meeting anywhere asked for a salary of 120,000 dollars as is being speculated in the mass media."

Uganda boss Bobby Williamson has also been linked with the position and, while it is believed he has not submitted an application, he has suggested he would consider the post.

"It's very flattering to be linked with the Ghana position as they are one of the top nations on this continent and have the potential to be a world force," he told "As it is, I also believe Uganda can be a real force and my allegiance is them at the moment."
