Slavisa Jokanovic is not the most experienced manager that Watford have had recently, or very experienced at all for that matter.
Nevertheless, he managed to stabilize his team and lead them to promotion during the 2014-2015 season after taking the reigns during a troubling time for the Hornets.
However, despite these successes, he failed to agree on a new contract with Watford due to disagreements about wages, per Express Sport and proceeded to leave the club.
And according to World Soccer Talk, his rumoured replacement is Quique Flores, who is much more experienced having managed clubs such as Valencia, Benfica, and Atletico Madrid before coaching in the Middle East.
In addition, Flores won the Europa League with Atletico Madrid in 2010, adding to his impressive resume.

While the decision to part ways with Jokanovic may come as a shock to some, Flores makes for an impressive managerial candidate for Watford to consider.
However, as always, it’s best to not get one’s hopes up:
What’s this? Quique Flores holding the Europa League? Oh. Okay… Cautious optimism advised. #Watfordfc pic.twitter.com/YRSTYjWgrR
