Watford, a Championship team, fired Rob Edwards on Monday and replaced him with Slaven Bilic, a former West Ham and West Brom manager. After confirming that Edwards had been sacked after just 11 games in charge across all competitions, the club confirmed Bilic’s arrival. With three victories from 10 league games, the squad demoted from the Premier League last season is tenth in the Championship, the second division of English football. Gino Pozzo, the Hornets owner, stated, “As with other choices made by the board, I believe this adjustment to be in the organization’s best interests.”
“We believed Rob had had time to reveal his team members to us. However, performances haven’t been in line with our expectations or goals.
Slaven Bilic, who has recently experienced Premier League promotion, is the experienced coach we have hired to help us move ahead.
Bilic, a 54-year-old former player and coach for Croatia’s national side, led West Brom to promotion in the 2019–20 season. Since then, he has been a manager in China.
