Video: Deulofeu On Hornets Loan

Speaking after the final-day fixture with Manchester United, Gerard Deulofeu told about how much he had enjoyed his time with the Hornets, despite suffering a metatarsal injury that restricted him to just seven appearances after arriving on-loan from Barcelona.

“I decided to come here to play 15 games. I was unlucky with my injury, but my first four games were incredible,” said Deulofeu. “But that's football.

“I am happy for my work, for that experience, and happy with these months with Watford.”

He added: “I came to Watford to try and go to the national team, but it was unlucky I had this injury. I worked really hard, and before the injury I was at a really good level, but thanks to Watford for the good months here.”

The Spanish winger's mission to return to La Roja's squad was his primary motivation for moving to Hertfordshire in January. 

“I've played there, and I have a feeling I can be there with the big players. I work for this. I am happy for my work and I am happy to play the last two or three games after injury,” said Deulofeu.

What comes next, though, is uncertain, with the pacy wide-man free to leave the Catalan giants in the summer. 

“In the summer I will go out from Barcelona,” said the Spaniard. “But I don't know to which team I will go. Let's see, I have to decide, but of course Watford is one option.”
