Watford FC announced the appointment of Nigel Pearson as the club’s new Head Coach on December 6, 2019.
Pearson has a wealth of managerial experience. He drove a successful bid for post-promotion Premier League survival with a run of seven victories in nine games at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, having secured his side a top-flight place during the previous season.
During two spells at the King Power Stadium, the former Derby County and Hull City boss also led the Foxes to a League One title and two Championship Play-Off places as well as that 2013/14 Championship title win. A former England Under-21 assistant coach, Pearson has also held managerial roles at Southampton and Carlisle – and was most recently employed at Belgian outfit Oud-Heverlee Leuven.
