Watford supporters have their say on the club’s decision to appoint Slavisa Jokanovic as their new manager.

Watford have a new manager in charge: it’s former Chelsea midfielder Slavisa Jokanovic.

The 46-year-old has replaced Billy McKinlay, who was in charge of the Championship outfit for just eight days.

Former Scotland international McKinlay replaced Oscar Garcia, who had to step down from his position due to health reasons. The Spaniard himself had succeeded Beppe Sannino, who quit on August 31.

However, the 45-year-old was in charge of Watford for just two matches, with Jokanovic becoming the Hornets’ fourth manager in just 37 days.

Jokanovic will take charge of a Watford side who are doing quite well in the Championship so far this campaign despite the recent managerial problems.

Watford are currently third in the league table with 21 points from 11 matches, level on points with Norwich City and Nottingham Forest, who are first and second respectively due to better goal differences.

Following the announcement, Watford fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the appointment of Jokanovic as the new manager. Below are the best reactions:
