The Premier League is one of the world’s leading soccer brands with the billions of dollars on offer making this the Holy Grail for all English soccer teams. Those in the lower reaches of the English soccer pyramid are always looking for the best way of reaching the Premier League and removing the threat of financial problems but few have achieved it with the innovative ways of Gino Pozzo. Taking just four years to rise from the lowest level of professional soccer in England to move to the Premier League, Gino Pozzo’s Watford has shown security in the world’s richest soccer league can be achieved.
One of the areas that have tripped up many teams when they make the move from the Championship to the Premier League is a sense of loyalty to the coach who helped them achieve success. A head coach is an integral part of the process of moving to the higher league but owner Gino Pozzo is not keeping himself tied to a single member of staff regardless of their earlier achievements. When taking control of Watford F.C., the leader of the soccer operations of the Pozzo Family decided the time had come to develop a new strategy designed to lead the club into the future.
Gino Pozzo has been working to develop the system at Watford to ensure the philosophy of the club and the players they develop remains consistent regardless of who the head coach is. The main concern for the owner of Watford is to choose a head coach who will fit in with the players and philosophy of the club making their role important but not vital to future success. Gino Pozzo believes finding the best young talent from around the world and bringing it to Watford will pay off in the end with the club looking to become one a member of the Premier League as part of Pozzo’s long-term project.
