Premier League Club and recently promoted side, Watford have finally appointed new head coach just a day after sacking Spanish tactician, Xisco Munoz, with former Chelsea and Leicester City manager, Claudio Ranieri taking over at the Vicarage Road Stadium.
According to reputable journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the 69 year old Italian tactician has signed a two-year contract with Watford and that an official announcement from the club is expected in the next few hours, in a huge blow to a number of clubs in Serie A who have been keeping close tabs on him in the last few weeks.
Claudio Ranieri had a fantastic spell with Leicester City back in 2016 where he guided them to the Premier League title, following a promotion from the Championship in the same season and hence, he is no doubt a greater addition to the Hornets who are currently lagging behind in the fourteenth position of the league table after picking just one win in their last five games.
