Britos | “No Excuses”

Defender Miguel Britos cut a subdued figure as the Hornets returned to training today, but was keen to deliver the following message regarding the incident that marred Saturday's 0-0 draw with Brighton.

“I would like to publicly apologise for my red card on Saturday,” said the Uruguayan centre-half.

“It was not my intention to hurt the Brighton player, and I am happy he was okay and able to carry on playing the match.”

“My timing was wrong but there are no excuses and I was very sad when I was in the dressing room,” he added.

“I know I let the coach, my teammates, the fans and everyone down and for this I am very sorry.”

The 32-year-old continued: “I have experienced the highs and lows in the two matches at Vicarage Road this season and this is football. I have seen the statistics about my red cards and I am not happy about this, this is not how I want my career to be talked about.”

“I accept my punishment and I know it will be a few weeks before I can be available to play again, but I will be working hard in training so that, if selected, I am ready to help the team.” said Britos.
