Tom Cleverley Appointed Permanent Head Coach of Watford

Tom Cleverley has been confirmed as the new permanent head coach of Championship club Watford, following a successful stint as interim boss.

The former England international, 34, assumed the interim role after the dismissal of Valerien Ismael in March. Since then, Cleverley has overseen a positive run of results, losing just one of his seven matches in charge. Under his leadership, Watford secured safety from relegation, currently occupying the 15th position in the Championship table.

Cleverley brings a wealth of experience to his new role, having enjoyed a distinguished playing career that included spells at top clubs like Manchester United and representing the England national team. His connection with Watford runs deep, having spent three separate periods at Vicarage Road as a player, including two loan spells. He retired from professional football at the club last year.

The appointment marks a significant step for Watford as they look to build on their recent performances and aim for greater success under Cleverley’s guidance.
