Skipper discusses Burnley, Crystal Palace and his season so far

Deeney | “I've Got My Mojo Back”

It’s not been an ideal first half of the season for Watford skipper Troy Deeney. Following on from a frustrating season last year by his high standards, the centre-forward missed most of pre-season with a groin injury and followed that up with a three-match ban after an incident in the home match against Stoke City.

“It was the first time being properly injured in my whole career, so to get that ten days into pre-season wasn’t ideal, I missed all of pre-season and then I’m playing catch up.

“And once I did get the little run I obviously had the incident with Stoke so I’ve had to reflect on that.” Deeney said.  

Despite these high-hurdles, the former Walsall man is in a positive frame of mind and confessed he is finally enjoying his football again after last season.

“I’m enjoying it, I’m enjoying playing football again.

“There are times when football becomes a bit stressful, but I’m a happy-go-lucky guy. Now I’ve got my mojo back, I’m enjoying it and ready to keep going now.”
