After a difficult start to the season, the revolving doors of managers at Watford was once again pushed open, resulting in the exit of Xisco Munoz, something that Klopp has criticised, and the entrance of former Premier League winner Claudio Ranieri.
It is a managerial policy that is often criticised, and perhaps rightly so. The Hornets rarely hand their managers a chance before giving them the boot. When considering that Munoz wasn’t even in the relegation zone when he got the sack, his dismissal seems even more bizarre.
Incomes Ranieri, however, hoping to keep his new side afloat and avoid the ever-opening revolving door. It will certainly be interesting to see how the Italian does. The last time that he was in the Premier League was with Fulham, and that didn’t end too well, or last too long before he was given the boot.
You can see what Klopp had to say about the managerial change below:
