Watford Bring Back Head Coach Linked With Newcastle In Summer

Watford have parted ways with Javi Gracia today as he becomes the first manager sacked this season. Gracia was appointed in January 2018 when he replaced Everton’s current manager Marco Silva.

Watford have returned to a familiar face to succeed Gracia in former coach Quique Sanchez Flores.

Sanchez Flores returns to Vicarage Road where he was manager in 2015-16 upon their promotion to the Premier League. The Spaniard was surprisingly sacked following that season despite finishing in 13th position with 45 points.

This is the tenth time in the past eight seasons that Watford have made a coaching change.

The Telegraph had reported in early July that Newcastle were considering Quique Sanchez Flores to replace Rafa Benitez. However, if true, it does not appear that the 54-year-old was high on the list.

    Have to say I’m a bit confused as well. For someone who thinks ash is a crap owner you don’t half defend him a lot.
    You’ll get splinters sitting on that fence.

    To try and give you a basic example toon. If I had an ex wife who I went through a messy divorce and I really hated her. If someone then come to me and said yes she’s horrible and she is a burgler when there was no evidence to say she had burgled houses I wouldn’t agree with them just because I hated her.

    Rotonda it’s very simple really. I am certainly not sitting on the fence either as I have said the day Ashley goes I will be first out celebrating.
