Watford on Monday announced the sacking of their manager, Claudio Ranieri, barely a week after Everton announced the dismissal of Rafa Benitez as their boss.
The Hornets are now in search of a third manager in one season after sacking Ranieri barely three months ago.
Ranieri’s sack follows Watford’s 3-0 defeat to relegation rivals, Norwich City, three days ago.
The veteran Italian boss is leaving the club bottom of the Premier League table as they sit 19th in the Premier League table just two points off the foot of the table and two points from safety.
The club had sacked Xisco Munoz in October with the team 14th on the table.
The club’s statement partly said, “…The board feels that, with nearly half of the Premier League campaign remaining, a change in the Head Coach position now will give a new appointment sufficient time to work with a talented squad to achieve the immediate goal of retaining Premier League status.”
Watford’s next game is their trip to Turf Moor where they will face Burnley on February 5, following the Premier League’s mid-season winter break.
