Folivi | “That Feeling Is What You Live For”

It’s been a month to remember for promising Hornets youngster Michael Folivi.

After being part of the first-team travelling squad for the trip to Anfield a month ago today (November 6), Folivi put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year contract with the club last week. 

“It’s a great achievement for me” – Folivi said speaking to watfordfc.com

“This is what we work hard for in training. We battle and graft, we meet new people and we test ourselves, and now the rewards have paid off – I’m very happy and I need to kick on from here now. 

“It was surreal to be at Anfield on my first travels with the first-team, it was a feeling I couldn’t really explain.

“That feeling is what you live for – it’s what you wake up at 6.30am for and you run hard after sessions with the sports scientists.  

“If I want to do that every week though, I’ve got to work hard and push on from that and when the opportunity comes again I’ll have to take it.”

Watch the exclusive video above to hear more from Folivi ahead of the Under-23s' trip to Bishops Stortford in the Herts Senior Cup tonight (Tue Dec 6).
