Watford have announced that former Inter Milan boss Walter Mazzarri will become the new Hornets head coach.
The 54-year-old Italian, who has also managed Sampdoria and Napoli, has signed a three-year contract at Vicarage Road.
Mazzarri replaces Quique Sanchez Flores, who left after less than a year with the Premier League side.
Watford finished 13th in a season where they also lost in the FA Cup semi-finals to Crystal Palace.
Mazzarri, who won the Coppa Italia with Napoli in 2012 and took the club to second in Serie A the following season, is the Hornets' eighth manager in the past four years.
