Javi Gracia downplays Deeney's injury

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 328

Javi Gracia, who cannot count on Troy Deeney for the foreseeable future, sees the captain's injury as an opportunity for other footballers to take a step forward.

Watford confirmed the injury of their captain Troy Deeney for an indefinite time, so his return to the pitch is all dependent on how well his knee recovers.

However, just like the 'Hornets' head coach Javi Gracia confirmed, the striker's absence is an opportunity for other footballers, that should take a step forward.

But the Spanish coach doesn't want to force the two new signings and demand too much too soon of the summer buys, Welback and Sarr.

"They are training well with the group. They are not in the best condition possible, but the important thing is that they can help us. I am not sure that they will play every minute of a game, but yes they can help us in the next few weeks", he highlighted.
