Watford defender Craig Cathcart supports hire and fire policy

Watford defender Craig Cathcart has welcomed the appointment of new manager Claudio Ranieri.

Cathcart supports the club's hire and fire policy.

“That's the way the owners do things," he said. “They have things in place, they make a decision and change things quickly. It's what they've done over the years and it's worked so we can't dwell too much on it. For us as players we have to accept it and get behind the new manager.

“I think if you look at the success over the last five or six years, we've sustained success. Obviously we had that long stint in the Premier League, we went down and we bounced straight back up so you can't really say too many bad things about it. It works well."

Claudio Ranieri will become the 12th different manager Cathcart has played for at Watford, and the highest-profile appointment as a Premier League winner with Leicester.

“We have to look forward to it," Cathcart added. “He's got a lot of experience in the Premier League, he's won the Premier League so it's a new coach, a new challenge for everybody. Hopefully he can come in and help us achieve our goals."
