Watford have suffered a blow after manager Giuseppe Sannino resigned from his post at the club.

The Italian believes he has taken the Hornets as far as he can and leaves Watford sitting second in the Championship table.

Sannino told the club's site: "I took over a very talented squad when I arrived – but they were boys in many ways.

"I'm proud of what we have achieved and I have no doubt that the squad now, who look very much like men who know exactly what they must do, are very capable of getting promotion from this tough Championship league.


"I know I have given everything to Watford; I have given my heart and soul to the job and I have been happy to do this because of the wonderful support I have received from everyone – and most of all the fans, who are truly amazing."


Watford have collected 12 points from their opening five games in the Championship this season, a total only bettered by Nottingham Forest.

His last game in charge of Watford was a 4-2 win over Huddersfield yesterday.
