Silva prepared to ditch Hull for Watford

The former Leicester City boss, who sealed an historic Premier League title triumph with the Foxes last season, leads the latest betting ahead of Hull City's Marco Silva.

Walter Mazzarri hasn't even closed finished boxing up his head coach's office at Vicarage Road, but the Italian has wasted no time in unleashing both barrels on Watford in a strongly worded attack on the club's philosophies. Watford may finish the season on 40 points, the sacred mark for clubs in the drop zone.

When this team is on form, they should be one of the best teams in the world and perhaps we might see something like that on Sunday.

It continued: "We thank Walter and his staff for the contribution they have made to Watford Football Club over the past year". We have had some problems, but we have met the target.

"Unfortunately, when all was going well and we were in seventh place in the table, we had this incredible glut of injuries".

The Italian arrived at the Hornets last summer on a three-year deal but his first season in charge has not lived up to the expectations of the club with chairman Scott Duxbury saying he had failed to meet their "discussed goals and aspirations".

Mazzarri was criticised for using a translator throughout his stay at Watford, but he replied: "The English language proved to be very hard".

"I am exhausted after a demanding year, but it all depends on the offers you receive", he said. Despite Mazzarri taking English lessons to communicate with his players better, he constantly found himself barking orders from the touchline in Italian, a language that numerous players did not understand. I like getting to know a new league. Now I would like to go to Spain, Portugal or any other destination that motivates me. If possible, I would like to know a new league.
