Thoughts with Davenport

Gianfranco Zola has reiterated the support of everybody at West Ham United for Calum Davenport who was still in a stable condition on Monday.

The club initially received positive news on Sunday about the condition of the 26-year-old defender, who received stab wounds in an incident in the early hours of Saturday morning. The matter is the subject of an ongoing police investigation.

Davenport's mother, who was also injured during the incident, is said to be recovering well.

Following Sunday's Barclays Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur, Zola said the thoughts of everyone were with the player at this time.

"I said it before the match that we are very sorry for what happened to him. We imagine what he has been through and we are close to him. Hopefully, he will get better very quickly.

"The doctor told me that the situation is stable and he's okay and, obviously, the situation will become clearer in the next few days. For the moment, the situation is stable."

Club staff are maintaining close contact with the medical team treating the player.
