Barely weeks after Everton sacked Rafael Benitez over poor results, their counterparts Watford have sacked coach Claudio Ranieri after just three months in charge, amid a relegation battle.
Ranieri, unable to move Watford from the 19th position, was adamant that he would augment the underdogs from demotion threats after their November win which saw them beat Manchester United 4-1.
Unencumbered by people’s opinions, Ranieri, formerly at Chelsea and Leicester, bosted that he would do anything to lift the hornets despite losing seven matches from the eight games he oversaw.
Dean Jones, a transfer pundit, once described Ranieri as a walking dead man whose day of reckoning was inevitable.
The final nail on the Italian’s coffin was reportedly hit when Watford lost to Norwich City at home in the 3-0 battle that saw the situation at Vicarage Road Uneasy for the 70 -year- old
The family in charge of Watford are said to be no-nonsense with Xisco Munoz’s departure in October last signaling that they were yearning for good results, thus appointing Ranieri. Seemingly, he was not equal to the task.
Everton has reportedly reached a ‘full agreement’ for Vitor Pereira to become their new manager.
