We have plenty of Hornets news in this week’s issue of WD Sport, which you can digest while watching the Euros.
There is the latest on the club’s firm stance over Troy Deeney and Leicester’s persistent interest.
We have an exclusive interview with Uche Ikpeazu who has been released by Watford after three seasons at Vicarage Road, most of which have been spent out on loan. “I was treated really badly. When people see you’re playing Watford they think you must be enjoying life and everything is cool because you’re playing for a Premier League club. They don’t realise [what it can be like]. “
Alex Jakubiak reveals just how challenging it was for the under-21 side this season. “For training sessions there has sometimes been four or five of us and we’ve not known what we’re doing five minutes before the session,” he said.
There is an emotional interview with released Watford defender who talks about losing his father to cancer. “My dad was massive in my life,” Young said. “He was at every game and played reserve football at Southend for a while.”
Will Jose Manuel Jurado follow Quique Sanchez Flores to Espanyol?
“I’m enjoying this experience, so I’m going to try and take advantage to the maximum and then hopefully go back to Spain.”
Darren Ward is the latest subject of our Q&A. He talks about the time when he left Vicarage Road. “The year before and I did well, playing about 40 games. Vialli came in and wiped the slate clean. He got rid of lots of players and brought his own players in. I was floating around to begin with but I could see he wasn’t particularly interested.”
Gifton Noel-Williams is our columnist this week and while he is like most Watford fans and doesn’t want to see Deeney leave, he would understand if he does.
“It would be sad to see him go, even if the move will better his career. He would leave a massive void as a captain, influential leader and a talented striker.”
WD Sport is available in all the usual places you’d expect to find a newspaper in Watford and its surrounding areas.
