Kiko Femenia excited to return to action for Watford

Spanish defender Kiko Femenia has expressed his excitement at returning to full training with the Watford following his lengthy injury spell.

Femenia has been on the sidelines since December 2019 after he sustained a hamstring injury against Wolverhampton Wanderers and prior to that, he had been on top form.

“I'm happy to be back from my injury,” he said. “It's been very frustrating because it's been a month and a half that I haven't been able to compete," he told the club's official website.

"I haven't been able to do what I love and have had to train separately.

"I think an injury is the worst thing for a player, but I'm better now, 100 per cent recovered. I'm back with the team and so I'm happy.”

“I feel very comfortable as left-back but I'm not overly bothered which side I play on,” he said. “I just need to be prepared for wherever the gaffer sees me fit to play. I will try to give my all.”

The former Barcelona star returns to action for the Hornets with 12 games left and will hope to help the side remain in the Premier League.

“How I see the end of the season is us making a success of the season,” he said.

“The main objective is to save ourselves from relegation and I think we have it in us, the group, to do so.

"I'm looking forward to contributing to the team from now until the end of the season so that we can make a success out of this situation. I hope to be prepared for the gaffer by Sunday.”
