Watford are on the hunt for a new manager after sacking Xisco Munoz after just seven Premier League games. The Hornets are currently 14th in the league after picking up seven points from their opening fixtures.

Munoz guided Watford to the Premier League last season but the club opted against giving the Spaniard time to turn things around.


So who could take over at the Vicarage Road? The very latest next Watford manager odds are available via our betting widgets below.

Xisco Munoz

Claudio Ranieri

Former Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri is available after leaving Sampdoria at the end of last season. It’ll be wishful thinking from Watford if they want the Italian to repeat his Leicester heroics.

Diego Martinez

Will Watford roll the dice with another Spaniard in Diego Martinez? He left La Liga side Granada earlier this year after two top-half finishes and reaching the Europa League quarter-finals.

Paulo Fonseca

Paulo Fonseca was expected to take over at Tottenham in the summer, however, Spurs opted to go all in on Nuno Espirito Santo instead. The ex-Roma boss disagreed with the board’s ideas and the move fell through. He better be prepared for more rows if he heads to Watford.

Eddie Howe

Ah, another managerial position for Eddie Howe to be linked to. Will someone please give the man a job? Howe has been out of the game since leaving Bournemouth in 2020. Could the 43-year-old be the solution?

Gianfranco Zola

Watford have already sacked Gianfranco Zola once so what’s the harm in bringing him back to do it all over again at Christmas?

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard is on the hunt for the right offer after being axed by Chelsea. He is said to have avoided the Crystal Palace position in the summer due to fears it was too big of a job. Can’t imagine he’d think any different of Watford.

Chris Wilder

Chris Wilder would definitely get those Watford players fired up. He did a brilliant job at Sheffield United before it fell apart slightly towards the end. Either way, he’d be a solid appointment.
