OFFICIAL: Roy Hodgson, new manager of Watford

The watford made the hiring official Roy Hodgson as the new technical director to replace Claudio Ranieri, who was fired after the painful defeat against Norwich City in the Premier League and fell into the relegation places (penultimate in the table with 14 points, two points from salvation and the same from last place) to Championship. The English manager returns from retirement to try to save one of the most unstable teams in the English top flight, being the third manager they will have this campaign.

Roy Hodgson, 74 years old and who has a record of 123 wins in 366 games of charge in the English first division, has just done a great job at Crystal Palace in recent years. He managed to keep it very comfortably in the Premier League for several years and without having a significant investment behind him. He is a coach who bets on an old-time English style of play: 4-4-2, mid-block, quick transitions to attack on the wings. His profile fits well with the current Watford squad. His debut would be against Burnley, bottom of the table, a key match to dream of permanence.
