EPL: Watford sack manager Xisco Munoz after 1-0 loss


Watford on Sunday parted company with their manager Xisco Munoz, just seven matches into the new English Premier League season.

Watford disclosed this in a statement via their website on Sunday morning.

This is coming less than 24 hours after Watford lost `1-0 against Leeds United in a Premier League tie on Saturday.

Munoz guided the Hornets back into the Premier League last season by earning a promotion from the Championship.

“Watford FC confirms Xisco Muñoz has left his post as the club’s Head Coach,” a club statement read.

“The Board feels recent performances strongly indicate a negative trend at a time when team cohesion should be visibly improving.

“The Hornets 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.

“No further club comment will be available until the imminent announcement of a new Head Coach.”

Watford are currently in the 14th position on the Premier League table with seven points from seven games.
