Billy McKinlay was sacked today after only eight days in charge and has been replaced by former Chelsea midfielder Slavisa Jokanovic.

Zola managed the club between 2012 and 2013 but quit last December to be replaced by Beppe Sannino.

Sannino resigned earlier this season after dressing room unrest, and was replaced by former Brighton boss Oscar Garcia. But Garcia left the club after 27 days following a health scare, and was immediately replaced by McKinlay.

But after gaining four points from two games, McKinlay was shockingly relieved of his duties this afternoon.

After the rollercoaster start to the season, former Italian international Zola says the club now need a period of stability.

“Obviously in the last few months there have been a lot of things going on and that doesn’t help even if you have a good team, you need to have things settled,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.

“It is a good team certainly. They have very good players. A few people have asked me about it (Watford) but I can only speak well of it. I had a very good opportunity and good time there.

“I hope it will happen for them because it is a good club.”

Watford currently sit in third place in the Championship.
