Nigel Named As Watford Head Coach

Nigel Pearson has agreed a deal until the end of the 2019/20 season to become head coach of Premier League side Watford.

Watford, who are currently bottom of the Premier League, will hope that Pearson can inspire an escape from relegation similar to the ones he has masterminded as manager of Carlisle United, Southampton and Leicester City, and as assistant manager of West Bromwich Albion.

Pearson will watch from the stands tomorrow (Saturday 7 December) as his new side take on Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road.
