Xisco Munoz: Watford sack manager after poor spell

Last update on. From the section Watford
In December, Watford's manager was Xisco Munoz.

After 10 months, Watford has fired their manager Xisco Muniz.

After joining the Premier League in December 2020, the 41-year-old Spaniard was promoted to that league last season.

Watford is 14th, with seven points from seven matches. Munoz's last match was Saturday's 1-0 loss to Leeds United.

The board stated that recent performance strongly indicated a negative trend in a time when team cohesion should have been visible improving.

"The Hornets will forever be grateful to Xisco, for his part in securing last year's promotion, and we wish him all the best for his future football career."

"Until the announcement of a new coach, no further comments will be made about the club."

Watford has had five managers over the past two years, and it is not clear who they will be replacing.

Munoz is the Premier League's first manager to be fired this season.
