Watford appoint Ranieri as new manager

Watford have appointed Claudio Ranieri as their new manager, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Ranieri, who led Leicester to the Premier League title in 2016, agreed a two-year contract with the Hornets to replace the sacked Xisco Munoz.

“Watford FC is delighted to confirm the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as the club’s new head coach, on a two-year contract,” a statement on the club’s website announced.

Ranieri takes over with Watford in 15th place in the Premier League after earning seven points from their opening seven matches.

Xisco had led Watford to promotion from the Championship last season, but he was axed on Sunday after only 10 months in charge.

Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Leeds prompted Watford’s owners, the Pozzo family, to act, with the club claiming a “negative trend” in performances had convinced them to move on from Xisco.

Former Chelsea boss Ranieri is Watford’s 13th permanent manager since the Pozzo family took control of the club in 2012.

Watford’s first match with Ranieri in charge will be against Liverpool at Vicarage Road on October 16.
