Watford sack manager Slaven Bilic to ‘re-energise’ Championship push | Watford
Watford have sacked head coach Slaven Bilic, the club have announced.
The Croatian, 54, has been relieved of his duties after just six months in charge of the Hornets. Watford, who have won just three matches since Christmas, are ninth in the Championship.
“We are all ambitious to succeed this season, so something new is needed quickly while the opportunity of promotion is still real,” said Ben Manga, the club’s technical director.
“With the January transfer window over, to change coach is the only option available to re-energise for the final games ahead.”
Bilic took over from the axed Rob Edwards in late September.
