Claudio Ranieri has taken over from the dismissed Claudio Marchetti. Xisco Munoz is the head coach of Watford.With the club in 15th place, he was fired after only seven games of the new season. Claudio Ranieri, who memorably led Leicester to the Premier League title in 2015-16, has taken over as Xisco's replacement.
