I made mistakes at Watford - Success

Isaac Success Isaac Success

Udinese striker Isaac Success has admitted that he made mistakes during his time at Watford, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.

Success joined the Hornets from Granada in 2016 as a 20-year-old for a then club-record fee of £12.5m but failed to justify his price tag.

He made 72 Hornets appearances, netting six goals during his five-year spell at the club.

“It wasn’t meant for me to work with the managers that passed through Watford,” Success told LiveScore.

“I definitely made a few mistakes but they (the club) did as well. 

“It was difficult for me. I was young and I got a bit carried away because I wasn’t playing. Now I’m older, I understand how it works and I have to keep working because the chance is going to come.

The Nigerian striker also revealed that he was not under pressure when he joined the club in a then-record deal.

“There wasn’t a lot of pressure when I arrived as the record signing. I wanted to come and compete in a different league. We all know how highly the Premier League is rated compared to the other leagues.He also added that the Italian Serie A is more tactical than the EPL.

“In England, it’s more intense, whereas in Italy it’s more tactical,” the 24-year-old continued.

“Sometimes if you don’t pay attention in the Italian league, you might lose the game. Sometimes for players, it’s not easy because you’re thinking about playing and at the same time your mind is on tactics.”
