Watford appoint Mazzarri

Former Inter boss signs three-year contract

Walter Mazzarri has been named as the new head coach of Watford, having signed a three-year deal with the club.

The former Inter Milan boss replaces Quique Sanchez Flores, and the 54-year old will take the reins at the Hornets on 1 July.

"Walter has been the target of a number of approaches for his services, so we're delighted to secure him as head coach here at Watford," chief executive Scott Duxbury told the Hertfordshire outfit’s official website.

"We're thoroughly looking forward to working with such a highly regarded coach, with the progress and development of the club always remaining the highest priority."

Spaniard Flores was let go by Watford after less than a year in the job, despite guiding the team to a 13th-placed Premier League finish and an FA Cup semi-final.

Mazzarri won the 2012 Coppa Italia with Napoli before taking the club to second place in Serie A the following season.

He landed the top job at Inter but was sacked by the Milanese giants in November 2014, with the club ninth in the Italian top flight.
