Watford appoint Ranieri as latest head coach after Munoz sacking



Claudio Ranieri has been appointed Watford head coach after the sacking of Xisco Munoz.

The Italian is the 15th permanent manager at Vicarage Road in the past decade and has signed a two-year deal at the club.

His most recent job was at Sampdoria in Serie A while he was last in the Premier League at Fulham.

A short spell at Craven Cottage in the 2019-20 campaign saw him dismissed after 17 matches in charge, during which time they only won three games.

Now he will be tasked with ensuring the Hornets’ first season back in the big time lasts longer than one season.

Munoz was appointed last December and guided Watford to promotion, as well as seven points from their opening seven games in his 10 month spell.

Ranieri will be joined at Vicarage Road by coaches Paolo Benetti and Carlo Cornacchi and fitness coach Carlo Spignoli.

His first game will be after the international break when the 15th-placed team welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to Hertfordshire.
