After a wave of rumors that began towards the end of July, tonight (Saturday) it became official: Vladimir Ivitch has been appointed Watford coach. The Serb has signed for two years with the freshman relegated from the Premier League to the Championship, and will try to bring it back to the English Premier League.
“First of all, I have high expectations of myself and also of my coaching staff,” he said Ivica In his presentation at Watford, “This is my first time in England and I will have to adapt as quickly as possible. I’ll do my best for the club, that’s the most important thing. I have been working with my team for the last three years and we will come to do our best to help the players and help the club meet its goals. ”
The Maccabi Tel Aviv coach for the past two seasons has joined the Wasps after a tremendous period with the Yellows, in which he led the club to two huge championships with only two league losses in 2018/19 and 2019/20. By the way, he is not the first ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv player to come to Watford – as Oscar Garcia also coached there after serving in the Yellows, and also Selvisha Yukanovich, who promoted the club from the Championship to the Premier League in 2014/15, and then came to Maccabi Tel Aviv And qualified with her for the Champions League.
Ivica, 43, who coached at Greek PAOK before joining Maccabi Tel Aviv, was given a two-season contract with the English Premier League team, and it will be interesting to see how and where his career develops, as he is without a doubt one of the best foreign coaches to ever come to Israel.
