Watford are set to reward manager Javi Gracia with a brand new three year contract, according to reports.
The Spanish manager was brought in to replace Marco Silva who left his role in January and since then his work has done wonders for the Hornets. When Garcia took over the reign the team was in shambles as one win in 11 games put them in danger of being dropped to the second tier.
But Garcia managed to set the team together and gave the relegation scare an escape. His bright work has reaped rich dividends this season too as Watford have had a brilliant start to the season.
Although their results are not up to the mark as they have gone four matches without a win but Gracia’s way of work has been appreciated and the new contract is a result of that.
The club hierarchy are believed to be in discussion with his agent and announcement could be made at any moment. There had been uncertainty over his future but with this new deal, the manager can now concentrate on his long term vision with the club.
When it comes to appointing managers the Hornets have a pretty rich history. Since the takeover of the club by Pozzo family in 2010 the club have seen ten managers in the Dugout with Gracian being the tenth one.
