Watford to sack Nigel Pearson with just two games of the season remaining

Watford will end the season having had four managers in charge

Watford FC are set to relieve Nigel Pearson of his duties as manager, according to numerous reports.

There are just two games of the season remaining for the Hornets, but Pearson will not be in the dugout as they fight to avoid relegation as he did at Leicester in 2015.

Pearson’s replacement will be Watford’s fourth manager this season, after Javi Gracia, Quique Sanchez-Flores and Pearson himself.

Watford are currently 17th, three points clear of Bournemouth in 18th, but play Manchester City and Arsenal in their two remaining games.

Losing their last game 3-1 to West Ham without putting up much of a fight has proved to be the final straw for the Watford board.

The highlight of Pearson’s time at Vicarage Road will be beating Liverpool, ending their unbeaten run.
