Giuseppe Sannino linked with Leeds following shock Watford departureby Jack Kitson / 01 September 2014, 09:43Tweet
Watford have reluctantly begun their search for a third manager in nine months after Giuseppe Sannino surprisingly departed on Sunday night. The Italian resigned from his post just three weeks into the new campaign, despite leading the Hornets to second place in the table after recording four wins from their opening five Championship matches.
Bookmakers have reacted to the sudden exit by installing Sannino as the hot new favourite in the Next Leeds United Manager Market. The 57-year-old, who said he has done all he can at Vicarage Road, now tops the betting at just 8/11 with Sky Bet, ahead of the likes of Simon Grayson, Steve Clarke and Oscar Garcia.
Meanwhile the former Brighton and Hove Albion boss Oscar Garcia has been installed as the early favourite in the Next Watford Manager Market. Filippo Galli, Chris Hughton and Roberto Di Matteo also feature, whereas former boss Gianfranco Zola can be backed at 12/1 to make a dramatic return to the Hornets helm.
