Gerard Deulofeu praises Watford support during difficult period
Gerard Deulofeu has thanked Watford supporters for their support through a tricky spell and claims that the team are fully behind Quique Sanchez Flores.
Watford sit the Premier League table after 13 matches and are just five points from safety having won just once that year.
They face a huge match against Southampton on Saturday Night Football, that are just a point and put before them, for sticking with the team also the Watford fans have been praised by Deulofeu.
Speaking to Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill, he said:”My message to the enthusiasts is due to the amazing support because in Premier League and England, there’s a good deal of respect for groups not in the ideal period and that is really great.
“Now, the players need to provide them successes since they support us no matter what the outcome and that doesn’t happen in other counties. So give our best to them and we must respect our lovers.
“It’s the real truth, we’re in the bottom. We really do deserve it since we didn’t play 100 per cent for 90 minutes when the folks today say we do not need to lose 3-0 , we left the sport at 70 or even 60 minutes.
“Herethere are a great deal of good teams who play with a great deal of fire and that is what we must improve and change it on Saturday since we do not have a great deal of time. We have to begin to take things.
“Southampton are the next squad in the table and we are in really terrible period. Another defeat in the weekend and we have to improve a few things, we must take confidence, be responsible, play for 90 minutes using 100 per cent intensity and also be ready and take the 3 points since Watford have to be in another area.”
Since Sanchez Flores substituted Javi Gracia watford’s gloomy type has failed to increase, also Deulofeu is financing his fellow Spaniard to turn matters around.
“All the players are supporting the coach,” he explained. “I think the coach is doing the things very well and the significant thing is the players who perform 90 mins finally have to change a few things.
“That usually means playing over 90 minutes with great intensity, acquiring the confidence and never be nervous about the circumstance. For me personally, the shape and what he is hoping to do is perfect.”
Deulofeu has ever been one of the standout performers for Watford, and he is much more focused on gaining points as the 25-year-old would like to transcend his 10 target tally from last season.
“I’m not concerned about that [exceeding 10 goals for the season],” he explained. “I understand I’m going to score since I produce a great deal of opportunities and the goalkeepers save from me a lot of times.
“First, it’s points and assisting the team, it doesn’t matter who scores, but then I’m also a striker and I am really ambitious so I wish to evaluate 10 like last season or longer if I could.
“My design is to move onto the pitch and then try my very best. When I visit the pitch, I don’t feel like I’m in the bottom of the desk… and I try with my speed, my one versus one and all to make my best. I am trying to help the group and the problem is we have to improve some things, such as me, to become more regular than what we’ve played until today.”
With the transfer window set to open in a couple of months’ time, rumours have started to surface which Deulofeu could return into AC Milan in January, but the forward has downplayed that he links.
He added:”I’m very happy here and my respect for Watford is really the most significant thing. Because I have not been in this scenario here in 17, I wish to alter this situation.
“Everybody knows my passion for Milan, that is why. Because I played , I’m proud of offers from different teams and for Milan and it’s a group and fans who adore me and that I love them.
“But today I want to honor my team and modify the situation.”
