Pussetto: “The Morale Is Great”

By: Watford FC Staff

Ignacio Pussetto is itching to dive into what he describes as a ‘mini tournament’ of nine games in six weeks, starting with Saturday’s early kick-off against Leicester City.

The squad returned to training at London Colney four weeks ago and will resume the Premier League season this weekend at Vicarage Road with a fixture that was initially scheduled for March 14.

“Returning to training has been really good, I was desperately wanting to get back into the swing of things and see my teammates and get back into training,” said Pussetto.

“I'm really enjoying training since we've been back, and now I'm anxious to start playing games.”

Spirits are high in the camp despite the unusual circumstances and strict social distancing measures in place, and Pussetto is confident the team have enough in the tank to get over the line.

“The morale is great, it’s very positive,” said the Argentine.

“We know we have a mini tournament ahead of us, which will decide if we remain in the Premier League. I think we are doing well, and we will give it our all.”

The industrious midfielder has made six appearances off the bench since joining from Udinese in January, including a spectacular debut against Spurs in which he saved a point with a goal line clearance.

“On an individual basis, I’d like to try to get as many minutes as possible and fight for a spot in the starting XI,” he said.

“Our main goal is that we have to escape relegation as soon as we possibly can and try to get as many points as we can so that we don't have to worry and have it on our minds.”
