Former Watford boss Xisco Munoz has become the manager of Spanish side Huesca, just over three weeks after he was sacked by the Londoners.

Munoz left Watford at the start of this month just seven games into the new Premier League season.

He was quickly replaced by former Leicester and Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri.

Ranieri and Watford: a fling of convenience which might just work

Huesca announced the departure of Nacho Ambriz on Tuesday and moved swiftly to land their new man on a deal to the end of the current campaign.

“Xisco Munoz is the new coach of the Sociedad Deportiva Huesca,” the club confirmed on their website.

“The blue and red club and the Mallorcan coach have reached an agreement until the end of the season to lead Huesca in LaLiga SmartBank.

“He will start the job immediately and will do so together with his coaching staff made up of Antonio Calle, assistant coach, Julian Jimenez, physical trainer, and Miguel Angel Munoz, analyst.”

Huesca currently sit 12th in the table with Xisco’s first game coming at home to struggling Amorebieta on Saturday.

The 41-year-old took over at Vicarage Road in December 2020 and led Watford to promotion from the Sky Bet Championship but was sacked with the club sitting 15th in the Premier League.

Speaking after leaving Watford, Munoz said: “I’m very grateful for the journey.

“When we discuss things that are going to happen, it is complex. It depends on the politics of the club and the owners.

“The bottom four teams in the Premier League have not won yet; it all depends on patience.

“I like to see football from different points of view. I was going to stay in Georgia for two more years, and when I got the call from Watford, I didn’t think about it.”
