Watford Sacks Rob Edwards And Appoints A New Head Coach

Published

on

Watford professional football club have sacked Rob Edwards, who took charge of just 11 games and leaves Vicarage Road with the club 10th in the Sky Bet Championship.

Rob Edwards managed Watford for just 11 games, leaving the club in 10th place in the Sky Bet Championship. Former West Ham, West Brom, and Croatia manager Slaven Bilic was swiftly named as Edwards‘ replacement at Watford.

Bilic has signed an 18-month contract at Vicarage Road, replacing Edwards who took charge of just 11 matches during a three-month stint at Watford.

In a statement, Watford owner Gino Pozzo said:

“As with all decisions taken by the Board, I believe this change to be in the best interests of the club. We felt Rob had enough time to show us the identity of his team, however, performances haven’t reflected our hopes and ambitions. Now we must move forward, and, in Slaven Bilic, we have secured the services of an experienced coach who has recent experience of promotion to the Premier League.”

Edwards was hired after the club was demoted from the Premier League last summer after making an impression while coaching Forest Green to the League Two championship.

The 39-year-old got off to a good start as Watford picked up seven points from their first three games. However, after managing just one more victory after that, he was fired, becoming the 17th permanent manager to lose his job since the Pozzo family took over Watford in 2012.

Former Croatia international player and head coach Bilic takes over with Watford 10th in the Championship table ahead of a trip to Stoke on Sunday.

The 54-year-old managed West Ham in the Premier League and his most recent work in English football saw him guide West Brom to promotion from the Championship in 2019/20.

A Watford statement concluded: “Bilic’s other staff will be confirmed in due course and Watford FC will make no further comment at this time.”

EPL: Perfect Signing – Arsenal Told To Recruit Ex-manchester United Star, Ronaldo

Published

on

Former Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman, has urged the Gunners to sign former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

Seaman believes it would be a perfect signing if Arsenal brought Ronaldo to Emirates Stadium.

Ronaldo is presently a free agent after his contract with Man United was terminated this week.

The Portugal captain’s contract was terminated days after his explosive interview with broadcaster Piers Morgan in which he slammed Man United, the Glazer family, Erik ten Hag, among others.

“Ronaldo is far from done and he would be perfect for Arsenal,” Seaman told TalkTV.

“I would applaud him [for the explosive interview] because he is obviously talking the truth. A lot of the stuff he came out with is not the stuff we have not heard.

“We have heard a lot of other experienced players moaning and criticising Man United for the way the ground is and the training.

“That shocked me and that should not be happening. He has been all around the world and seen how everywhere has progressed and he comes back to his beloved Man United and nothing has changed.”
