Watford announce former England coach to replace Claudio Ranieri as new manager
No sooner has the Italian departed after a series of poor results, than Gino Pozzo has ensured the new incumbent is in place.
The Hornets have Premier League fixture on February 5 against Burnley and Roy Hodgson, confirmed as the new coach in charge has 10 days to prepare for the game.
It’s a surprise move from Hodgson’s perspective given that he had retired at the end of last season, making way for Patrick Vieira at Crystal Palace.
At 74 years of age, he is once again the oldest swinger in town, but with such a depth of experience, his advancing years should be no barrier to whether he is successful in the role or not.
