It is believed that the rumors that Gino Pozzo, owner of Watford, is planning to purchase Sabadell, a club that plays at a lesser level in Spain, are true.
According to the Spanish website sport.es, a company that is headed by Pozzo is “close to concluding a deal” in order to acquire control of the Catalonian team that plays in Spain’s Primera Division RFEF, which is the third tier of the nation’s football hierarchy. An American investor who had the goal of getting the club promoted to La Liga was brought in thanks to the efforts of an Italian businessman who owns both Watford in England and Udinese in Italy. The deal was arranged by an Italian businessman. The Pozzo group is expected to take control after negotiations with the current president, Esteve Calzada, have reached the “final stages.”
The rumors also say that an investor or organization that has not yet been identified will be a part of the takeover, which is scheduled to take place during the month of November. According to reports, the new investor is an American organization that will enhance the club’s finances as well as the performance of the squad on the field.
The goal of all involved parties is to have everything ready by the end of November so that they can start making moves in the transfer market in January.
This summer marked the beginning of conversations between Pozzo and Calzada, and while the specifics have not yet been ironed out, it has been decided that the Watford owners would be participating in the sports management without being in charge of it.
They have prior experience working in the Spanish football league for Granada and Valladolid, so this is not their first time being engaged in the sport.
As a result of the deal, they will be able to ensure the entry of up-and-coming young talent as well as players who need to acclimate to European football. This is something that they have done over the years at both Watford and Udinese.
Sabadell is a club that was founded in 1903 and has had many stints in La Liga, the longest of which lasted from 1965 to 1972 and the most recent of which lasted from 1986 until 1988. They also competed in the final of the Copa del Ray in 1935, but lost to Sevilla by a score of 3-0.
Gabri, a former player for Barcelona who represented Spain at the international level and made more than 130 appearances for the club throughout his playing career, is the current team’s manager.
With four victories out of a possible nine in the Primera Division RFEF Group 2 competition, Sabadell is presently ranked ninth out of the 20 clubs in the competition. The Nova Creu Alta, which has a seating capacity of slightly under 12,000, is where home games are played for this team.
The majority of the players on the Sabadell roster are Spanish, but they also feature Ismael Athuman, a defender who has represented Kenya at the international level, and Joanet, a midfielder who has appeared four times for Equitorial Guinea. Moha Keita, a winger from Senegal who is 23 years old, is also on their roster.
The club’s uniform, which is blue and white with white quartering, makes them appear a lot like Bristol Rovers, and it turns out that the two teams are in fact twins.
About Gino Pozzo
Gino Pozzo is the current owner of the Watford Football Club, which competes in the English Premier League. He was brought up in an Italian home that was full of people who were quite enthusiastic about football. He completed the transaction, which allowed him to become leader of the Watford football club. He was not going to be the kind of owner who did nothing. He wanted to be in charge of the club throughout the process of making all of the significant decisions that would have an effect on it. As a result, he uprooted his family and transferred them to England. His wife and their two children had a lot of adjusting to do as a result of this change. Despite this, over time they developed a deep appreciation for British culture and are looking forward to a bright future.
