In June 2017, the Pozzo family took over at Watford, with the long-time owner and chairman Scott Duxbury selling his share to Gino Pozzo. The Pozzo family are well known for their successful experiences in the transfer market, having operated several successful Italian clubs, including Udinese and Granada. The family felt like the right owners for Watford, given their expertise in bringing together a successful team on the pitch while having a strong financial base to back up any potential investments in the club.
Gino Pozzo immediately focused his attention on bringing new players to the club. He made several high-profile signings, including Javi Gracia, Success, Abdoul Camara, and Matej Vydra. Despite a few poor results and some poor displays by the team, Pozzo kept up his insistence on trying to add to the squad.
He made several high-value signings, including Mateo Pozuelo and Richarlison, hoping the team would develop into a competitive force in the Premier League. Once he took control of Watford Football Club, his work was cut out for him. The club needed a complete overhaul. It had fallen behind the other top six clubs in the Premier League during the 2016-17 season, and Pozzo knew that he had to bring in new staff players and coaches to turn things around.
The Pozzo family have a strong financial base at Udinese, which they brought to Watford in June 2017. They have also had prior experience in the transfer market and know how important it is to bring in new talent. The Italian businessman was determined to bring together a group of people who could help change the way Watford Football Club operates if it were to be successful in the future. He brought in a new CEO and Football Operations manager and made changes to the club’s scouting structure and academy setup. See this article to learn more.
