Ex-Chelsea star was unable to get the results as manager in the Championship
Gianfranco Zola says he is unsure whether or not to go back into management after his failed spell with Birmingham City.
He won just twice in 24 games in charge before resigning last month.
Harry Redknapp then came in as caretaker manager and won two out of three matches to keep the club in the Championship.
Zola who is a playing legend with Chelsea and was also an Italy international in his prime, has also managed West Ham, Cagliari and Watford, but tells Sky Sports News he is taking some time away from management.
"I'll see. I'm making some considerations. It's been hard because again, I put a lot into it and we will see," he said.
"But I think there is still more to come. I need to reorganise myself."
His most successful period in management in terms of win percentage was at Watford between July 2012 and December 2013, also leading them to the playoff final in May 2013 where they lost to Crystal Palace.
