By: Watford FC Staff

Watford FC is pleased to confirm the appointment of Xisco Muñoz as Head Coach.

The 40-year-old Spaniard – with an attacking philosophy to his coaching – was most recently manager at Dinamo Tbilisi, where he guided the club to a second successive Georgian league title in 2020.

Muñoz, who also boasts coaching experience at Spanish clubs Gimnàstic and Pobla Mafumet, was part of the Valencia squad that achieved a remarkable UEFA Cup and La Liga double in 2003/04, as well as winning the UEFA Super Cup the following season.

The former winger’s playing days also included spells with Recreativo, Tenerife, Real Betis, Levante, Dinamo Tbilisi and Gimnàstic, and he represented the Spanish national team at Under-21 level.

Muñoz will be joined at Watford by Roberto Cuesta (Assistant Coach) and Jorge Abella (Strength & Conditioning Coach), while Antonello Brambilla – who was already at the club – will move into the role of first-team Goalkeeping Coach.
