EPL: Watford appoint Roy Hodgson as manager

Watford have named Roy Hodgson as their new manager following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri.

The Italian was shown the door just 112 days into his two-year contract following Friday night’s horror 3-0 loss at home to relegation rivals Norwich.

An official club statement said: “Watford FC is delighted to confirm the appointment of Roy Hodgson as the club’s manager.

“The ex-England national team boss is joined by his trusted assistant Ray Lewington, who managed the Hornets so admirably from 2002 until 2005.

“Best known for leading the Three Lions during a four-year spell which took in Euro 2012, World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016, Hodgson has also managed extensively at club level in England and across the world.”

It went on to add: “Hodgson and Lewington begin preparations immediately for Watford’s next Premier League fixture; away to Burnley on Saturday February 5.

“Welcome to Watford, Roy. And welcome back, Ray!”
