‘It’s a problem for us,’ Watford manager Munoz saddened about Etebo’s injury

Ahead of Watford’s Premier League game against Leeds United this Saturday, manager Xisco Munoz has expressed sadness over Oghenekaro Etebo’s injury.

Etebo tore a quad muscle on his knee during Watford’s league match against Newcastle last week and the club revealed that the 25-year-old Nigerian will be out for four to five months as a result.

“I’m very sad about this, always when one of our players gets a big injury,” Munoz told the club’s website when asked about Etebo.

“It’s a problem for us and now is the moment to give him the best recovery. He has a great attitude.

“He is out for four to five months and this is a problem also for him because he has a very good attitude for our squad and team.

“I didn’t speak anything about this [Afcon]. I spoke to him only about the injury and I wish him all the best.”

The Nigerian midfielder is set to miss the African Cup of Nations, which begins January 9 in Cameroon.

Etebo joined Watford on loan from Stoke City in July and has featured in all six of the Hornets’ Premier League games so far this season.
