Ismael appointed Watford head coach

Watford have confirmed the appointment of Valerien Ismael as the club's new head coach.

The 47-year-old replaces Chris Wilder, whose short-term contract came to an end following Watford's final Championship game of the season.

On the appointment, Watford technical director Ben Manga said: "Being able to appoint a new coach so soon in May means we can prepare very well together for next season.

"To be able to welcome someone of Valerien's experience to Watford is good news for our club. We are all looking forward to working with him."

A month ago, the Hornets announced Wilder would remain as manager until at least the end of the season, quashing speculation he was set to be sacked after just 36 days in charge
