Ranieri, Silva in mix to succeed Mazzarri at Watford

Ranieri, Silva in mix to succeed Mazzarri at Watford

Watford announced that Mazzarri would be stepping down following a meeting with the club's board on Wednesday afternoon.

"The ideal situation is to have a tactical project that excites you and the club buys the necessary players to fit your ideas".

"It does not have to be a very big club; I am willing to accept any position if I can feel that the project is going to be mine".

Slutsky has since been working in England as an adviser to friend Roman Abramovich, and in a recent interview with Sky Sports he spoke of his desire to work in the Premier League or the Championship, as he bids to become the first Russian to manage on these shores.

Watford can not be relegated, but has lost its last five games to drop to 16th place in the 20-team league.

A win for Manchester City will mean that they they will finish third and get automatic qualification to the Champions League for next season.

"We have had some problems, but we have met the target", said Mazzarri.

"For someone that always wants more I always have the image in my head of when we were seventh and we beat Everton", Mazzarri said. That important people in English football, and Alan Shearer praised the team which filled me with pride.

It is believed that Mazzarri and Watford's top scorer Troy Deeney never saw eye-to-eye during their time together and it even resulted in Deeney being benched on a regular basis over the course of the season.

"Despite these misfortunes, we were able to reach the 40 points with six games remaining, which is the record for this club". "A language like Spanish is much easier for me to get to grips with". I knew why he had to go out. If possible, I would like to know a new league.
