Watford reportedly set to replace Slavisa Jokanovic with Quique Floresby Jack Kitson / 26 May 2015, 13:23Tweet
Watford are reportedly set to replace their promotion winning manager Slavisa Jokanovic, just weeks after he led the club up to the Premier League. Rumours are rife that the Hornets have decided to savagely dispense of the Serb after less than eight months at the helm, and if true, this leaves the Hertfordshire club seeking out their fifth boss inside the last 10 months.
- Jokanovic led Watford to promotion in April.
- Flores has previously managed the likes of Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Getafe & Benfica.
Jokanovic, who only took charge in October, and his troops sealed promotion from the Championship at the end of April, following a 2-0 win at Brighton. The Hornets then came seconds away from winning the title in their final game of the campaign, however a last-gasp equaliser from Sheff Wed meant that Bournemouth finished at the summit of the second-tier.
The rumour mill reveals that Watford, who only appointed Jokanovic on a contract until the end of last season, are now attempting to lure the former Atletico Madrid manager Quique Flores to Vicarage Road, with the 50-year-old installed as the odds-on favourite in the betting. The Spaniard has also previously managed the likes of Valencia, Benfica, and most recently Getafe.
