Beppe Sannino believes he was taught a lot by the Watford supporters at the club’s awards dinner and says he couldn’t imagine a similar event taking place in Italy.

Sannino said: “I met the fans and they were able to make me feel their support. It’s a fantastic experience and I have a very good connection with the supporters.

“It was a beautiful night. The club and the supporters taught me a lot. In Italy you can’t imagine doing these things.

“It was like a party after a fantastic season where you win the title. This is a lesson for people who come from abroad.”

Sannino gave a speech at Sunday’s event thanking the fans, players, backroom staff, the Pozzos, local media and Marco Cesarini. 

When asked about his speech, Sannino replied: “You saw my performance; I was a little bit agitated because I was speaking in front of many people on the stage in a different language.

“I was a little bit worried but whatever you do, you do it with your heart even if there are mistakes.

“Everybody was silent during the speech so I think they understood what I was trying to say.”

Great guy, grew to luv him more and more until the disastrous end of the season run of defeats and too many goals conceded!

Not the man for us next season unless he is teamed in partnership with a more aggressive manager.

Zola and Beppe would have been great! How about Malky and Beppe?

Also just seen as breaking news that Malky has agreed a settlement pay-off from Vincent Tan at Cardiff, thus making himself available for the first time for six months!

Come on WFC, move quickly and get him back before Norwich nip in and get their former skipper and promo leader.

Malky and Beppe could make quite a team?

Wow reading Malky's statement, he must have been paid a fortune to be sucking up to Tan like that.

We haven't played Man United this season. If you mean Man City they aren't champions!

I'll bet he feels great reading this crap about Mackay. We are not changing managers this summer, get used to it
