Watford Sacks Manager Xisco Munoz After 10 Months

Watford has sacked their manager Xisco Munoz after 10 months in the job. The 41-year-old Spaniard helped Watford win promotion to the Premier League last season after joining in December 2020. Watford club is 14th with seven points from seven games and Munoz's last match in charge was Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Leeds United. The club said that the board feels recent performances strongly indicate a negative trend at a time when team cohesion should be visibly improving. The club said they will always be grateful to Xisco for the part he played in securing last season's promotion and wish him well for his future career in football. The new head coach has not yet been announced.

Watford has had five managers in two years and there has been no indication of who will replace Munoz. The club, who were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Stoke in September, will next play Liverpool on 16 October in a league fixture.
