After being relegated from the Premier League, Watford FC received the second piece of bad news: Now, believe it or not, 27 players have to be sacked.

Some contracts are not valid: Watford FC is relegated from the Premier League after just one season. The consequences are serious: According to information from the “Sun”, a total of 27 players have to be released. As the four regulars’ contracts are not valid for the second division, Ben Foster, Nicolas N’Koulou, midfielder Juraj Kucka and striker Andre Gray will leave the club immediately.

Short, compact, clear

Pochettino’s son also affected: The “Bild” reports that the son of Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino is also affected by the bloodletting. The 21-year-old, along with 18 other U23 players, will not play for the Hornets next season. Four players from the U18 team will also be released. The club has not yet said whether the U-players also have to go because of invalid contracts.

Watford played a poor season: with just 23 points from 38 games, the promoted team found themselves trailing Burnley in 19th place at the end of the season and will play second-rate again next season.
