Troy Deeney absolutely tore into his Watford side after defeat at Hull

By Max McLean

“I’m not in the business of apologising to fans, but that weren’t fair.”

It’s safe to say Watford captain Troy Deeney doesn’t take losing to a team of 10 men very well.

The Hornets forward spoke to Match Of The Day after his side lost 2-0 to 10-man Hull, who had Oumar Niasse sent off on 25 minutes, and did not hold back in his assessment of the group performance.

“One team had a set of balls and ran and kicked and did all the horrible stuff, and the other team just wanted to play a game like it was Fifa,” said Deeney.

“I’m not in the business of apologising to fans but that weren’t fair on fans,” he continued. “It’s a long old dig to get up to there, and yeah, we’ve got a moral responsibility to play a lot better than that.”

Relegation strugglers Hull were left to play with 10 men for more than two-thirds of the game, but against all odds, goals from Lazar Markovic and Sam Clucas earned Marco Silva’s side an unexpected win.

With 65.6% of the possession, it’s no wonder Deeney was a little annoyed – sitting 10th in the league, are Watford on the beach already?
