  • Javi Gracia of Watford FC during the Pre-season Friendly match between Ajax and Watford FC- Watford fired head coach Javi Gracia amid fears Spaniard had'gone flat

Javi Gracia's fate was sealed on Thursday after Watford's top brass called a meeting to axe the beleaguered Spaniard.

Since leaving Watford in 2016, Sánchez Flores has managed Espanyol in Spain and Shanghai Shenhua in China.

Though Gracia's sacking will likely be thought to be brutal, Watford have confirmed themselves repeatedly to be decisive and profitable with regards to altering their head coach. Owner Gino Pozzo spends a lot of time at the club's training ground, where he has an office, and is constantly monitoring performance.

Dumped Gracia meanwhile had been a popular figure at Vicarage Road ― guiding the club to 11th in the Premier League and a first FA Cup final for 35 years last season. He is one of the 10 managers, including Gracia, who have left Watford in the last seven years.

Langer defends Australia's Ashes celebrations
People can make of it what they like. "Experience tells me when you're doing well people try and pick holes in you", Langer said. The fifth and final Test of the Ashes 2019 will be played at the Oval in London from September 12 to 16.

However, while the Cup run was accepted as mitigation in a drop-off in form - with Watford losing their last four league games - the team were beaten comprehensively, 6-0, at Wembley by Manchester City, which, it is argued, appears to have affected Gracia in this campaign.

Former Cobblers boss Dean Austin is set to return to work as assistant manager of Premier League side Watford. "Everyone at the Hornets wishes Javi and his staff all the very best for the future, and they will always be welcome visitors in the future at Vicarage Road".

Watford face Arsenal at home after the worldwide break, before travelling to Manchester City and Wolves. He remains respected and liked, and the decision to remove him was not taken lightly.

Javi Gracia, months after agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Hornets, was fired.
