Watford boss Xisco Munoz has refused to rule out a return to Spain to manage in La Liga during a recent interview with Sport Witness, stating his wish for it to happen one day.
The Hornets of course secured their return to the Premier League after just one season away last weekend and will now be looking ahead to the next campaign as they look to re-establish themselves as regulars in the top flight.
Munoz only took on the job back in December of last year and has since worked wonders to guide his side to second place with two rounds of matches left to play as they make a late push to attempt to win the Championship title.
Given Munoz’s previous experience of coaching in home country, it is almost inevitable that he will be linked with a return to Spain as his career progresses with Watford.
And the Hornets boss has done little to dampen that speculation by stating the following recently:
“But right now, I’m just thinking about continuing to learn.
Watford Quiz: Does Vicarage Road have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
“The next objective is the Premier League, which is very exciting, in the best competition in the world.”
In the meantime, Munoz is preparing his players for their final two league games of the season against Brentford and Swansea City respectively.
I don’t think Munoz is considering a return to Spanish shores just yet as he has plenty of room to improve things at Vicarage Road before thinking about a move further afield.
For now his main focus will be on keeping the club in the Premier League next term as they are sure to want to strengthen the existing squad this summer.
Holding onto the likes of Ismaila Sarr will also be viewed as a priority, with the winger continuing to be linked with a move elsewhere after sparkling for the Hornets this term.
Stability in the dugout is something that doesn’t come as a guarantee at Watford but Munoz won’t have done his chances any harm after clinching the promotion and immediate return to the Premier League that the owners desired.
