Watford Consider Stop-Gap Manager Until End of the Season

Hornets Seek Third Manager of the Season

The Hornets are without a manager following Quique Sanchez Flores’ dismissal on Sunday.

Watford are rock-bottom of the Premier League after 14 games.

The Hornets have won just once in the league so far this term and are already six points from safety.

Although, according to the Daily Mail, the Premier League side are looking at the potential to appoint someone on a short-term basis.

The national paper claims that securing a manager until the end of the season will give the benefit of reassessing in the summer; it will also avoid having a manager on a Premier League contract while operating in the second-tier.

Future Boss

An earlier report by the Mail, on Monday, stated that Watford are keen for Flores’ successor to be British.

The Hornets have appointed someone from overseas nine out of the last 10 times they have made a change.

As outlined by Sportsmail, Chris Hughton and Paul Clement are two candidates who match the criteria. It is also understood that they have already been spoken to about a move to Vicarage Road.

This also follows a report by Sky Sports that former Athletic Bilbao manager Jose Angel Ziganda is no longer a viable candidate despite being spoken to in regard to the vacancy.

Interim boss Hayden Mullins will lead the Hornets at Leicester City on Wednesday night.
