Gracia surprised by firing, but love for Watford ‘eternal’

Javia Gracia surprised by 'unexpected' Watford sacking Watford made decision to sack manager Javi Gracia last week after club's top brass called a meeting

Flores was previously in charge of the club, who are now bottom of the Premier League with one point after four matches, during the 2015-16 season, after which he was surprisingly sacked.

The announcements came during the global break with Watford bottom of the English Premier League with one point from the opening four games.

The announcement that Gracia had been dismissed followed - just 31 minutes later - that Quique Sanchez Flores would be returning to the Premier League club was made during England's Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria on Saturday.

At that time the club were able to exercise a break clause in his contract at the end of a season in which Flores had guided Watford to 13th place, their best league finish for 29 years, and an FA Cup semi-final.

Watford moved quickly to announce the re-appointment of Quique Sanchez Flores at Vicarage Road.

Losing their first three games set off alarm bells and while there were reports that Gracia was under pressure after the defeat by West Ham, it was actually picking up Watford's first point of the season, away to Newcastle, that sealed his fate.

"My gratefulness and love for this club will be eternal".

"I respect this decision and I'd like to reassure the excellent relationship I have with Gino Pozzo and Filippo Giradi, and it is not going to change despite my abrupt exit of the club".

Hornets captain Troy Deeney spoke in support of Gracia before he was dismissed, and the 49-year-old paid tribute to those who backed him during his spell at the club.

"I will always wish the fans and these players the best".
