Watford boss Xisco confident of board support

Watford boss Xisco Munoz is confident he has the board's support after a poor start to the season.

The Hornets started the campaign with a 3-2 victory over Aston Villa but have lost their last three Premier League matches and travel to another newly-promoted side this weekend in Norwich City.

When asked if the owners love him, Xisco replied with a smile: "I think so.

"We need to be calm about this. It is the moment for focus on Norwich, not the moment to think about something more. Not only me, everyone has the focus on Norwich. This is the most important thing."

Xisco had earlier discussed the backing he feels from the Watford supporters and insisted it was down to the effort he puts into the job, not just for ensuring they bounced back at the first time of asking last season.

He added: "I don't think that the fans only love me for the promotion. I think the fans love me because they know about me, my job and the process for last season.

"The process for last season was brilliant. When I arrived we gave one thing and for two months we had little problems. If we had won the last game against Wolves it would have been 12 wins in a row at our home. I think this is perfect for our job.

"I think the fans love me because they know I work very hard every day to give the best for club. This is the only thing. I don't think about the stupid things.

"When you are manager, you know you have one day to start and one day to finish. I promise our fans always I try to give all the best to the club and I will fight very hard until the last moment to give the best for my players."
