Report: Former Watford boss Slavisa Jokanovic linked with shock Granada move

Watford Vicarage Road 2

The Serbian would be working under the Pozzo family once again.

This summer Watford controversially changed managers once again. The club gained automatic promotion to the Premier League last season, under the guidance of manager Slavisa Jokanovic.

The former Chelsea player could not however agree a suitable contract with the Pozzo family, who own the club, and he left - with Quique Sanchez Flores taking his place.

That, you might think, would put a permanent rod between relations, but according to Mundo Deportivo that is not the case.

They report that the former Watford boss is in line for the Granada job in Spain, despite the La Liga side also being owned by the Pozzo family.

Granada, who survived relegation from La Liga last season, did so under Jose Ramon Sandoval. He only took the job in May on a deal until the end of the season and now the future of the head coach role at Granada is up in the air.

Interestingly Mundo Deportivo name Andrea Stramaccioni, recently relieved of duties at another Pozzo-owned club Udinese, as the other option alongside Jokanovic.

Whilst MD may be reporting this, it would certainly seem an odd decision to employ either manager considering their history with the respective owners.

However time will tell if Jokanovic remains in the Pozzo family next season.
