Watford sacks manager, Claudio Ranieri after three-and-a-half-months in charge (According Athletic)

According to the Athletic, Watford has parted ways with head coach Claudio Ranieri. This comes after Watford lost 3-0 at the hands of Norwich city which left them in 18th position. 

The Hornets are now actively searching for a third replacement for the role of head coach after first sacking Xisco Munoz in October and now Ranieri barely 4 months after he took the job. 

Ranieri only managed to win seven points during his time in charge, with the highlight being a 4-1 victory over Manchester United at Vicarage Road in November.

Since then, Watford have only managed a single point — a 1-1 draw at fellow strugglers Newcastle on January 15.

The Italian’s departure brings an end to his fourth spell in English football, after previously managing Chelsea, Leicester City, and Fulham.

The greatest achievement in Ranieri’s managerial career came in the 2015-16 season when he led Leicester to the Premier League title after the club were favourites for relegation at the beginning of the campaign.

But no such miracles occurred this time around.
