He later moved to Barcelona and stayed for 20 years and later to Spain after getting married. In 2013, he moved to London with his family to concentrate more on running the Watford football club.
For the Pozzo family, football is equally an investment as it is their passion. In 2008, the family sold their woodworking business to focus more on their investment in football clubs. The focus is to enable them to run the clubs in the right way. Gino Pozzo has been a key person to the family and has helped in developing a unique scouting-driven model of club ownership.
