Gray: “We’ll Come Back A Lot Stronger”
“Sometimes you’ve got to lose to win” – that was the philosophical message from Javi Gracia to his players after Saturday’s FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City.
Andre Gray revealed the Head Coach’s words of wisdom while discussing the game with the gathered media in the Wembley tunnel after full-time, and the striker backed up the Spaniard’s view that Watford will be a better team for the experience.
“That’s how we need to take it now and I’m sure we’ll come back next year a lot stronger,” he said. “We’ve got the summer now and then pre-season so we’ve got a lot of time to dust ourselves down.
“We’re professionals and if we want to be better than we were this season then we have to learn from it and move on.
“We’ve had one of our best seasons in the club’s history so we deserved to be here today. Now we need to try and step up and do even better than we did this season.
“We’ve got the right spirit now so it’s important to keep that and push ourselves on for next season.”
