Ekong hoping to have Watford’s fans in the stadium for his premier league debut

Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong is already looking forward to a good adventure in the premier league with Watford’s fans next season.

 


Troost-Ekong helped Watford regained their premier league return with a 1-0 success over Milwall at the Vicarage Road on Saturday.

 

The Nigerian international was playing in Serie A with Udinese, before joining Watford in the English second tier, in a bid to help them back to the top-flight division.

 

Speaking to the club’s media channel, Ekong said his risk paid off and was grateful to everyone at the club who made it possible.

 

“Credit to everyone from the backroom staff, to the media staff, to the manager, to all the physios, to the owner, to everyone. It’s amazing and it’s been a team effort,” he said.

 

“A lot of the time when you have a relegation it’s difficult to pick yourselves up. Everyone at the club did amazing to give us the best chance and now we’re here, so we’re all really happy.”

 

Since joining the club last summer, Ekong has not played in front of the fans, no thanks to the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.

 

However, Troost-Ekong is hopeful the fans will be back at Vicarage Road when Watford walkout for their first home game back in the top flight.

 

“The exciting bit of all of this is that next year we should be able to get fans in the Premier League and it will have been like we never left.”

 

“If there was ever a year for us to not be in the Premier League, this was it. Now we’re back and hopefully, the fans will be back, and it’ll feel like we never left,” he said.
