Jokanovic to give ’em Wat four
EX-CHELSEA midfielder Slavisa Jokanovic has become Watford’s FOURTH manager of the season, bringing Billy McKinlay’s reign to an end after only eight days.
McKinlay replaced Oscar Garcia at the end of September after the former Brighton boss, who had himself replaced Giuseppe Sannino, had a health scare.
Hornets owner Gino Pozzo has dispensed with McKinlay after just TWO GAMES because he feels he needs a manager with a proven track record.
Explaining the decision to hire 46-year-old Serbian Jokanovic (above), Pozzo said: “Our job is always to act in the best long-term interests of the club. There can be no compromise on this.
“Given the talented squad which has been assembled and our position in the league, a head coach with a winning pedigree is of primary importance to help ensure success.
“The fans have always been very understanding towards our project and I am certain they will do everything they can to support the new coach.”
