One interesting aspect of the Premier League fixture, this Saturday, against Watford is that it brings Slavisa Jokanovic face-to-face with a previous employer.
Jokanovic had happy ties at the Hertfordshire based club, guiding them to promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.
But, Slavisa never had the chance to show what he could do with the Hornets in the Premier League.
The two parties went their separate ways after, apparently, being unable to reach an agreement on a salary raise.
However, talking on the clubs official Twitter site, Slavisa doesn’t bear any grudges, remarking:
????️ @Jokanovic has no ill-feeling towards Watford.

That may certainly be the case, but I bet there will be a wry smile on his face when his side beat the Hornets.
I know if I were in Slavisa’s shoes I wouldn’t be so reserved, I’d be jumping for joy and sticking two fingers up in the general direction of the Watford directors sat in the plush seats, but that’s just me, a highly emotive and highly-strung person.
