“I think it was quite difficult in the beginning which is understandable because this is new for us,” said Nigeria international Okoye. “We’ll find our way; you can see in the second half we were way better and we’ve shown progress.”
Okoye joined the Hornets from Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam last season but spent the rest of the campaign in the Eredivisie, only linking up with his new side last month. He feels settled already in Hertfordshire and is optimistic about the season ahead.
“It’s been fantastic,” the 22-year-old continued. “I’ve had a great time already, there are funny guys and good vibes here. I think that’s important, we feel connected to other players and the staff, I’m settling in very well.”
