Watford have announced the appointment of Walter Mazzarri as their new head coach on a three-year contract.
The 54-year-old replaces Quique Sanchez Flores at Vicarage Road to become the Hornets' eighth manager in the last four years.
Italian Mazzarri arrives with plenty of coaching experience having managed Sampdoria, Napoli and Inter Milan amongst others in his home country.
Watford's chief executive Scott Duxbury told the club's official website: "Walter has been the target of a number of approaches for his services, so we're delighted to secure him as head coach here at Watford.
"We're thoroughly looking forward to working with such a highly-regarded coach, with the progress and development of the club always remaining the highest priority."
