Hull City approach Zola

Hull have made an approach to Gianfranco Zola about becoming their new manager, according to Sky in Italy.

Chelsea legend Zola has had managerial spells in English football with West Ham and Watford, but both ended with the sack.

He then moved back to his home island of Sardinia to manage Cagliari, but that reign ended in his dismissal too.

His most recent job was as head coach of Al-Arabi in Qatar, who dismissed him in June.

Meanwhile, the Welsh FA has told Sky Sports News HQ that it has received no approach from the Tigers about Chris Coleman, who signed a new two-year contract in May.

Steve Bruce left Hull this summer and Wales boss Coleman has been widely linked with the City job.

Bruce, who was interviewed for the England job last month, guided Hull back to the English Premier League last season, but stepped down last month. - PA Sport.
