European sports’ leagues are talking all about Gino Pozzo, owner of Watford Football Club of England. Both of his parents raised him as a football enthusiast in Udine, Italy. His family is related to the former presidents of the Udinese Football Club and his family continue to support and be fans of the Udinese Club.
When Gino was just 18, he moved to the United States and earned a Master’s degree from Harvard University. He married a woman from Spain, where he relocated and lived in Barcelona for nearly 20 years. In 2013, he acquired Watford Football Club and moved his family to London.
Since the 1960s, the Pozzo family has had involvement with football, especially the Udinese Football Club. The Udine Club rose to fame under the Pozzo family. Part of the reason they were able to garner so much support was the Pozzo family always had been community-oriented. In only three seasons, the Pozzo’s took Udinese from the lower tier group to the Champions League. It was in 1993 that Gino was able to turn the football club around and make champions out of the Italian football team.
The Watford Club had reached its’ highest peak in the 1980s, and when Gino Pozzo bought the club, he was determined to turn it all around. The first year of owning the club, Gino moved his family so that he could devote more time and energy to his new acquisition. He viewed the club as a work in progress that has a future for winning in England.
One of the ways Gino was able to turn around the club quickly is due to his hands-on approach. He influences people through his passion for the club and attends practices every day. He watched his team develop into the dream team.
Thanks to Gino Pozzo, he has been a great addition to the Watford Football Club. The team is now doing splendidly in the English league, and they are only progressing forward.
