Who is Watford manager Xisco?

Francisco Javier Muñoz Llompart was born on the 5th of September, 1980 in Manacor, Spain and is the current manager of Watford. Xisco played professional football for European clubs such as Levante, Real Betis, Valencia and Dinamo Tbilisi before going into management after retiring in 2016.

Xisco came through the youth academies of Mallorca and Valencia before making his senior debut in 1998 for Mallorca B. He joined Valencia’s B team in 1999 where he took 3 loan spells to Recreativo, Tenerife and then once more to Recreativo. He made his first team debut for Valencia in 2003 where he won La Liga, UEFA Cup and the UEFA Super cup all in the 2003/04 season.

Xisco then moved on to Real Betis in 2005 and then Levante in 2009 before leaving Spain to join Georgian side Dinamo Tbilisi in 2011. In his time in Georgia, Xisco won 2 Georgian Premier League titles, 2 Georgian Cups and a Georgian Super Cup along with 2 top scorer honours and a player of the year honour alongside it. In 2014, Xisco joined Catalan club Gimnàstic de Tarragona before retiring in 2016 to work as head coach Vicente Moreno's assistant.

CF Pobla de Mafumet gave Xisco his first managerial job in 2017 where he worked as an interim manager at the club. In 2020, Xisco returned to Dinamo Tbilisi as their head coach where he won the 2020 Georgian Premier League title in a very impressive display.

English side Watford appointed Xisco on the 20th of December, 2020 to replace former manager Vladimir Ivić following a 2-0 loss to Huddersfield Town with the club sitting in 5th place. Watford fans will hope that Xisco is the man to take the club back to the Premier League either via the playoffs or automatic promotion.
