English Premier league side, Watford on Sunday announced the sacking of manager, Marco Silva.
The sack came as a result of ‘unwarranted approach,’ from EPL rival, Everton for his services and also the club poor performances this season, winning just one game out of 11 Premier League matche
Watford said in a statement today, “The club is convinced the appointment of Silva was the right one and had it not been for the unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival for his services we would have continued to prosper under his leadership.”
“The catalyst for this decision is that unwarranted approach, something which the board believes has seen a significant deterioration in both focus and results to the point where the long-term future of Watford FC has been jeopardised.”
“For the security and success of the football club, the board believes it has to make a change.”
“The club will seek to make a swift appointment and there will be no further comment until that appointment has been made.
Watford are 10th in the Premier League table but only five points clear of the relegation places.
Silva, who was in charge at Hull City when they were relegated last season, is the eight Premier League manager to have lost his job this season.
