Deulofeu Impressed By Watford’s Start

Gerard Deulofeu has been impressed by Watford’s start to the season even though he has had to watch on from the sidelines.

The Spain international moved to Vicarage Road on a permanent basis from Barcelona during the summer after spending the second half of last season on loan, but a foot injury has meant he is yet to feature for the Hornets this term.

The 24-year-old has resumed first-team training, however, and could make his long-awaited return when Javi Gracia’s side play host to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Watford have impressed in Deulofeu’s absence, as they currently sit sixth in the top-flight standings and the winger has been quick to praise his team-mates, although he admits he has been frustrated that he has not been able to contribute.

“I am close to being back on the pitch, and I am so happy to train with my teammates because I miss being on the pitch and playing games too much,” Deulofeu told Premier League News.

“It is a little bit frustrating because the team is doing well and I want to be there with my teammates, but we have to keep this way.

“I am feeling good and I want to help the team keep this position and this good start to the season.”
