Claudio Ranieri is now the manager of William Troost-Ekong, Oghenekaro Etebo and Emmanuel Dennis, following his appointment as the new manager of Watford.
The Hornets announced Ranieri as their new head coach on a two-year contract after firing Xisco Muñoz.
The Italian, who led Leicester City to the Premier League title in 2016, left his job as Sampdoria manager at the end of last season.
Watford, who ranks 15th in the Premier League with seven points from seven games, fired head coach Muñoz after less than 10 months in charge on Sunday morning.
Muñoz, 41, replaced Vladimir Ivic in December 2020 and guided the club to automatic Championship promotion last season.

Munoz’s last game in charge was a 1-0 loss to Leeds at Elland Road on Saturday.
Ranieri is Watford’s thirteenth permanent boss since the Pozzo family completed their acquisition of Watford in 2012.
Ranieri, who will turn 70 later this month and has also managed Chelsea and Fulham, is well known to Watford owners and believes he has been a candidate for the position in the past.
His first match in charge will be against Liverpool in the Premier League at Vicarage Road after the international break on October 16.
Watford confirmed that Ranieri will be accompanied by assistant coaches Paolo Benetti and Carlo Cornacchia, as well as physical trainer Carlo Spignoli.
