West Bromwich Albion

Rivals of West Brom and Birmingham City fire the manager, and an ex-Man United player takes over right away.



With two months left in the season, one of West Brom’s and Birmingham City’s opponents fired their manager. This season, the Championship has seen a lot of firings and a lot of hot seat changes around the division.

The most recent is from Watford, a team that frequently changes managers, and Valérien Ismaël is the most recent to go. As Watford is currently 14 points out of the playoff spots and has little prospect of making the playoffs, they will have wanted to contend for a top six position this season.

Ismael, a Frenchman, took over as manager in May of last year, but he was fired right away when his team lost to Coventry City over the weekend. In their previous 12 games in all competitions, Watford have only won once.

Tom Cleverly, a midfielder for Manchester United and former Hornet, has already been confirmed as his temporary replacement. The club released the following statement: “Tom Cleverley will take over as Vicarage Road’s interim head coach. This comes after Watford FC, following today’s home loss to Coventry City, terminated Valérien Ismaël’s contract.

The Hornets express their gratitude to Valérien and his team for their hard work and devotion, but the club’s board feels that a change is necessary to achieve better outcomes. The confirmation of Tom Cleverley’s personnel will come eventually.

At just 34 years old, Cleverly has not yet gained any managerial experience; this is his first official position as a senior coach. It wasn’t until last year that he announced his retirement from the game. He had previously spent time on loan at Vicarage Road. Before retiring, the midfield player made 137 league appearances for the team.
