Watford FC has appointed former Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson as head coach following the sacking of Quique Sánchez Flores.

The 56-year-old will take up his post after their home fixture against Crystal Palace tomorrow (Saturday, December 7).

He will be on a contract that will run until the end of the season.

Watford’s chairman and CEO Scott Duxbury said of the club’s move to appoint Pearson: “Nigel is an impressive coach and comes with all of the experience and success we believe can have a very positive impact on our season.

“It’s been a pleasure spending time listening to the passion with which he talks about the game. His enthusiasm, organisation and motivation will I’m certain prove essential in driving the team forwards and upwards over the coming weeks and months.”
