The owner of Watford FC, Gino Pozzo has been a well talked about man for quite some time now. That’s because of his talent for taking lackluster teams and making them something to talk about, especially in their own home countries. Essentially making him a sort of house flipper but for football clubs. Coming from the Pozzo family who are known Football enthusiasts, Gino comes out as somewhat of a family prodigy as he has successfully masterminded his family’s scouting model. A model that has successfully groomed clubs for the better since back in 1993 when Gino Pozzo joined Udinese and ended up turning the club around.
In 2009, when in Barcelona, Gino was the main man when it came to the Pozzo family acquiring Granada FC during a time when the club was facing massive debt and a struggling career. After the club’s acquisition by Pozzo and give Gino direct influence over the club’s operations and such, they went from Segunda B to Primera Liga in about two years, adding another accomplishment to Gino’s name.
In 2012, the Pozzo family acquired Watford FC, another club deep in debt and have been stuck in a lower division and struggling since the 1980s. Pozzo approached Watford with big hopes, claiming this to be his family’s best future project as they’re focusing on a long-haul for Watford FC and trust that there will be great success with the organization because they see great potential in it. Four years later, Watford FC found themselves rising from the Fourth Division up to the Premiere League, currently the most prestigious football league.
Gino Pozzo has come on to the field of FC management with a new, improved gameplan than the usual tactics and he will most likely continue to flip football clubs for the better.
