Javi Gracia says he is determined to ‘build something’ at Watford after signing a new long-term contract at the club
Watford boss Javi Gracia says he wants to “build something special” after he signed a new four-and-a-half year contract on Wednesday.
The 48-year-old was initially brought in on an 18-month deal in January, replacing Marco Silva to become Watford’s ninth appointment since the Pozzo family became the owners in 2012.
Gracia’s new deal makes him the first Watford manager to sign an extension in that time, and the Spaniard said he was made to feel comfortable since day one.
“I’m delighted. I feel comfortable here in this environment, with the owners, the players, the supporters. I am happy to stay here. I am proud to belong to this club, our club,” he said.
