Watford has sacked head coach Xisco Munoz after 10 months in charge, with the team now 14th in the Premier League.
Munoz took over in December 2020, replacing Vladimir Ivic, and led the team to automatic promotion from the Championship last season.
Watford had gained seven points from their first seven league games, with Munoz’s final game in command a 1-0 defeat to Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday.
According to the board of the team, the recent performance of the club was poor, and they need someone who will take the club to a greater position.
Munoz, the Premier League’s first manager to be fired this season, began the new season with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa at Vicarage Road.
However, they have now suffered four defeats in six league games, with their only other success coming against fellow newly-promoted club Norwich.
The club is now searching for a new manager making it the 13th manager since 2012.
