Watford boss Claudio Ranieri is delighted to be in charge of Watford and believes he can keep Watford in the Premier League. Ranieri who turns 70 next week was in charge of the Leicester side that won the Premier League in 2015/16. He revealed that he feels stronger than he ever has and believes that survival could lead to bigger things for the club in the future. The Italian is replacing Xisco Munoz who helped the London club gain promotion from the Championship last season.
“Why not Watford?” Watford boss Claudio Ranieri said. “I feel good. Fortunately, I feel good. When I think about football, life is good. Football is my life. I am very happy to play in one of the best leagues in the world. I am an ambitious man and I hope to bring Watford to be safe at the end of the season and to improve. We have to be safe. The program is very ambitious and then I hope it will be a fantastic end for Watford and our fans.”
“In Italy, it is normal to change the manager,” he said. “We have to do our best, I can’t think about the previous manager. Xisco was my player at Valencia, I hope he can find a new solution very soon. Now, I have to do my best for Watford. Now – we have to be safe. Do you remember me at Leicester? 40 points, 40 points, 40 points, 40 points, we have to achieve. After, next season, we’ll see if we can do 41, and after 42, and after 43. That is my idea – but if everything arrives early, I am very happy.”
