Watford’s departing manager Walter Mazzarri says he has no regrets from his time at Vicarage Road but sidestepped questions regarding a fall-out with Troy Deeney.
“For someone that always wants more I always have the image in my head of when we were seventh and we beat Everton,” Mazzarri said.
“I would like to have that squad for the rest of the season and then I think we would have been able to do greater things this year.
“Never in my career have I had so many injuries in one season. There were some games I did not even know who to put on the pitch. But, honestly, I don’t have any regrets.”
Despite leading Watford to safety, however, Mazzarri has failed to convince the club’s owners, with reports suggesting he had lost the support of his squad and Deeney in particular.
Mazzarri believes it was the correct decision for the club to clarify his future before the final match.
Mazzarri also addressed suggestions that his lack of fluent English had been a problem this season.
“I am still learning the language,” he said.
Deeney is struggling with a hip problem and is likely to miss out this weekend, along with Adrian Mariappa, who picked up a knock in training.
Mariappa’s absence leaves Watford short in central defence as Sebastian Prodl is suspended while Younes Kaboul, Craig Cathcart and Christian Kabasele are all unavailable through injury.
