Deeney Plays Down European Aims

Deeney Plays Down European Aims

Watford captain Troy Deeney says the squad are not getting carried away by suggestions they could be European contenders.

The Hornets beat West Ham 2-0 on Saturday to extend their recent run to three unbeaten and move up to seventh in the Premier League table.

If the league were to stop now, that would be good enough to earn Javi Gracia’s side a spot in the qualifying stages of next season’s Europa League.

However, Watford have made a habit of making good starts to the campaign before tailing off and the more senior members of their squad have clearly taken heed from such situations.

Deeney, who opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the London Stadium, says the Hornets are not thinking about Europe and are instead focussing on maintaining their current momentum.

“I let everybody else do the ambitions. We know what we have got in the dressing room,” he said. “We are not a bad outfit. But we’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing, be a bit arrogant in terms of knowing what we have got, but humble enough to know you have to work hard to win in this league.”
