Champion League

Anthony Joshua approached regarding investment

It was only two seasons ago that Watford were in the Premier League but as we’ve seen time and again, things can change very quickly in football.

The Hornets had enjoyed a number of seasons in the English top-flight over the past decade, but since being relegated to the Championship, things have gone backwards for the club.

Watford want Anthony Joshua to invest

Last season Watford finished in 15th place with 61 goals scored and 61 conceded. They were a mammoth 17 points from getting into the Play-Offs, and just six points from being relegated into the third tier of English football.

Given that their form towards the end of the campaign was amongst the worst of all the teams in the division, had it gone on much longer, there could’ve been a very real threat of them going down.

Watford are seeking more investment

However, they live to fight another day in the Championship but it’s clear that things have to change.

To that end, according to The Athletic (subscription required), the club have approached Watford native, Anthony Joshua, regarding investing in the club.

As Goal also note, Watford is the club that the heavyweight boxer supports, so this is a move that will tug at the heart strings.

Whether any talks, which are described as being still at the early stages, will progress to anything more serious will only be seen over the course of the next few weeks.

The boxer might do well listening to Elton John to understand what he would be getting in return for ploughing his hard-earned into the club.

If Watford are unable to persuade him or anyone else to put a significant chunk of money in, however, then that doesn’t bode well for their immediate future.
