Fletcher’s next move forwards will be to the Premier League once more. He has lofty ambitions but that will suit Xisco Muñoz and the Hornets squad nicely.
“The club in general, it’s a Premier League team and it was quite clear when playing against them last year,” he said. “The quality to bounce straight back up, it was brilliant to see. You see teams who have come up from the Championship, like Leeds this year for example, who are in the top half of the table. There’s no reason Watford can’t do that next year.
“We’re going to look forward to it, that’s the main thing. From what I’ve seen from last season, there seems to be a good togetherness. It’s not easy getting promoted out of the Championship, you’ve got to have that spirit, and from what I saw, from watching the games and playing against them, Watford seem to have that.”
