Ramon Vega has emphasised that Watford should not repeat the same mistakes they made in their last Premier League campaign and keep faith in head coach Xisco Munoz, even if things don’t immediately go to plan next season.

The Hornets had four different managers in place the last time they played in the top-flight but Vega feels the hierarchy’s continuous short-term hire and fire approach is leading nowhere.

Spaniard Xisco guided the Hornets to an immediate return to the Premier League after overseeing 17 wins in 25 league appearances since taking over from Vladimir Ivic in late December last year and will remain in the dugout at Vicarage Road.

Former Hornet Vega insisted that every manager needs time to implement their tactical ideas and coaching philosophy at a club.

“Watford changed too many managers [in the Premier League in 2019/2020] and this is very destabilising because a club needs stability," said Vega. "Every manager has his own ideas and his own tactics and you can’t have a new manager in place every six months!

"It would be nice if the club finally sticks with the same manager for two or three years. Coaching is an important part of a squad, such as bringing through young players.

“If Watford struggle at the beginning of next season the club should not sack the manager because this just unsettles the whole team. Obviously, you never know how things go but you need to give people time and show them faith from the outset.

“But of course, if Watford lose their first ten games next season, it’s a no-brainer. But all I want is that the hierarchy finally show faith in a manager and won’t start panicking after two or three games already.”
