Gracia: Watford axe 'unexpected' after best year

Gracia: Watford axe 'unexpected' after best year”

The club announced on Saturday that former boss Quique Sanchez Flores, who was dismissed after a single season in charge in 2016, will be Gracia's replacement as the club look to climb the table.

Javi Gracia's fate was sealed on Thursday after Watford's top brass called a meeting to axe the beleaguered Spaniard.

The 49-year-old will work under new Hornets' boss Quique Sanchez Flores, as per a report by the Watford Observer. Proprietor Gino Pozzo spends a whole lot of time on the membership's coaching floor, the place he has an workplace, and is continually monitoring efficiency.

Watford, who have one point from four matches, dismissed Gracia on Saturday, bringing an end to a 20-month tenure during which he helped them finish 11th last season and reach the FA Cup final.

However, while the Cup run was accepted as mitigation in a drop-off in form - with Watford losing their last four league games - the team were beaten comprehensively, 6-0, at Wembley by Manchester City, which, it is argued, appears to have affected Gracia in this campaign.

It's these comments that made his return to Vicarage Road all the more extraordinary yesterday, when the club acted ruthlessly, sacking Javi Gracia after three defeats in four games at the start of.

Watford have a history of changing their managers with regularity.

"I will always wish the fans and these players the best".

Watford face Arsenal at home after the global break, before travelling to Manchester City and Wolves.

Because Watford sacked Flores originally by relying on that clause.
