Who is Watford manager Javi Gracia?

Javi Gracia is the current Watford manager after being appointed in January 2018 to replace outgoing manager Marco Silva who left to join Everton. Gracia was born in Pamplona, Spain on 1 May 1970 and is 49 years of age. Gracia previously played professional football in defensive midfield for clubs around Spain such as Real Sociedad, Villarreal, Valladolid and Athletic Bilbao’s reserve team.

Gracia started his playing career in 1977 in Osasuna’s academy as he also spent time in Chantrea and Athletic Bilbao’s academies before breaking into the reserve team at Athletic Bilbao in 1989. After leaving Athletic Bilbao’s reserve team in 1992 after making 100 competitive appearances, Gracia played for Lleida, Valladolid, Real Sociedad, Villarreal and Córdoba. Throughout his career, Gracia made 430 competitive appearances and scored 44 goals before retiring at Córdoba in 2004.

Gracia also made appearances for the Spanish under 20’s National team along with the Spanish under 21’s National team where he made 3 and 1 appearances respectively between the years of 1989 and 1991. He failed to break into the National side however despite being a regular for many different teams in Spain.

After retiring in 2004, Gracia went into management at Villarreal as a youth manager in the academy. Gracia then went on to manage Pontevedra, Cádiz, Villarreal’s reserve team, Olympiacos Volou, Kerkyra, Almería, Osasuna, Málaga, Rubin Kazan and then Watford to this current day. He’s only won major honours at Pontevedra and Cádiz where he won the Secunda Division B in the 2006-07 and 2008-09 respectively.

Javi Gracia was appointed by Watford in January 2018 after they sacked Marco Silva who’s head was already at Everton. In his two seasons so far at the club, Gracia has taken Watford to a 14th and 11th placed finish along with an FA Cup final in the 2018-19 season. He also won the Premier League Manager of the Month award in August 2018. Next season, Gracia will be in charge of taking Watford to a mid table finish and will hope to push the top 10. They’ve already signed Craig Dawson and Joao Pedro from West Bromwich Albion and Fluminese respectively for a combined fee of £8m. They’ll need to sign more players in the current transfer window if they are to complete the goal of a top 10 finish next season.
