Claudio Ranieri is back in the Premier League as the new Watford manager.

15th placed Watford sacked former head coach Xisco Munoz after a dismal seven points from seven games to start off the new season.

Ranieri, the Italian tinkerman who took Leicester City to the Premier League title six seasons ago, joins the Hornets on a two-year deal. But let’s not expect any miracles this time around — Watford are 2000/1 to win the Premier League this season.

Watford is the 17th club Ranieri has managed after stepping down as manager of Sampdoria the last term. He also becomes the 13th different coach at Vicarage Road since the Pozzo family took complete ownership of the club in 2012.

It just feels right having Ranieri back in the Premier League again. He coaches his first match against Liverpool on October 16.
