EPL: Success To Miss Watford Vs Leicester City Clash Due To Injury

Watford manager Nigel Pearson says Isaac Success is not available for selection ahead of Saturday’s home fixture against Leicester City due to injury, reports Completesports.com.

Success has struggled to stay on his feet since his arrival at the London club from Spanish club Granada in 2015.

The 24-year-old has managed four league appearances for the Hornets this season.

The Nigerian was linked with a move away from the club in January but opted to remain at the club and fight for his place.

“Isaac Success has ruptured his Achilles. Deulofeu won’t be available this season, he’s got a serious knee injury with his cruciate. Janmaat won’t be available either,” Pearson said at Thursday’s news conference.

“But everybody else more or less is available. We’ve tried to prepare the players at a pace which really does reflect very much where they are themselves.”

  • Like he will play even if fit?

    • Because of the atmosphere that currently pervades football in which clubs are allowed to make more substitutions than normal, this has created opportunities for fringe players to feature in matches.

      Taiwo Awoniyi and Kelechi Nwakali have both benefitted from this. After the resumption of football, I was hoping that Isaac Success would benefit too but his injury demons have struck again.

      A one time Super Eagle, his chances of earning a call up to the national team are now as remote as Nigeria being declared a visa free nation by the United States of America.

      Injuries, weight gain, dramatic loss of form and indiscipline are all factors that have driven a wedge between Isaac Success and his career growth.

      I come to this from the angle of a fan. I was quite happy when sacked coach Javi Gracia afforded Success healthy playing time in Watford last season. But in the matches I saw, he always looked slightly off pace. His spirit was willing, but his legs were often not up to it.

      With Havi gone, Success’ chances became even more limited.

      I do hope he turns his career around. From his matches that I saw, the potentials are still there. He just needs to work harder to fully rehabilitate himself. Hopefully he can put nagging niggling injuries behind him and then move to another club to start all over again.

      For me, a crime is not committed when a football makes mistakes. Rather, it is when they fail to pick themselves up, learn from the mistakes and move on that a crime is committed.
