Gino Pozzo – Watford FC April 11, 2019

Watford FC Fans Enjoying a Wonderful Campaign Thanks To Gino Pozzo

 

For over 30 years, Watford Football Club fans such as Elton John endured frustrating footballing seasons. The situation was hopeless. In 2012, a new man arrived from Barcelona, home to Europe’s footballing royalty FC Barcelona. He came with a very ambitious plan that most Watford fans did not believe to be possible.

He wanted to return the team to the top flight. This idea was a wild dream for a team that was languishing in the middle of League 2. His name is Gino Pozzo. For those who know something about footballing families, they know the Pozzo’s.

Thanks to their commitment to Udinese Football Club, a promise that is now 32 years old, the team has become the mainstay of the Italian top flight. They have even played several times in Europe’s elite competition the UEFA Champions League.

When Gino left Italy, he ventured into sports, this time in Spain. He picked Granada FC—a team that was struggling in the third division. Several years later, Granada FC was playing in the top flight. When Watford FC demanded his attention, Gino had to relocate to London. He also sold a majority stake of his holdings at Granada to focus on the Hornets. His sacrifices are paying off.

Gino Pozzo is now a fan favorite. They consider the current team the best they ever had. It is not hard to see why; even Europe’s elite clubs are courting some of their players. Since bringing on board the visionary Javi Garcia as manager, the team has continued to do well in the league.

Elton John, who is the honorary president of the club, holds the Pozzos in high regard. Gino Pozzo has transformed a mediocre club into a respectable force in the English Premier League. Scott Duxbury, the CEO, believes that the vision is on track despite the many managerial changes at the club.
