Mazzarri Gone Before Manchester City?
Walter Mazzarri isn't going to see out the season let alone remain in charge for another campaign as the former Inter Milan and Napoli boss will be sacked ahead of Watford's season finale against Manchester City?
Walter Mazzarri isn't going to see out the season let alone remain in charge of Watford for another campaign as the former Inter Milan boss will sacked ahead of the season finale against Manchester City on Sunday, according to ESPN FC.
After what most would consider a decent Premier League season, which also saw Watford making it to the FA Cup semi-finals, Quique Sanchez Flores was sacked last summer, swiftly replaced by Mazzarri, the apparent jewel in the crown the Pozzo family always sought, apparently.
Well, following a 'mixed' debut season - some would use a sterner word(s) - at Vicarage Road sources have reportedly informed ESPN Watford's owners are ready to sack Mazzarri and they'll NOT wait until the summer to do so, the Italian will get the boot ahead of the visit of Man City on Sunday.
Rumours of discontent in the dressing room have surfaced with it claimed in the Daily Mail several senior Watford players wouldn't entertain a second season under the management of Mazzarri - if he didn't go they would.
The fact Mazzarri, who has insisted he doesn't fear for his future, continues to lack English 'irks' players who are left 'bewildered' when he is 'barking instructions to them in Italian' during games.
Unlike the ESPN reports, the Mail said showdown talks with Mazzarri will take place after the Man City game and not before. But the indication is the same, players will actively seek Watford exits if he remains in charge - Hull's Marco Silva has again been credited as his potential replacement.
