Nigerian defender Williams Troost-Ekong has sent an emotional farewell message to Watford FC fans ahead of his move to Salernitana.
Ekong via his social media accounts described his three seasons at Watford as ‘ special ‘ and so had nice words for everyone connected to the English Championship side.
Ekong wrote ” The moment has come for me to move on from Watford FC after 3 special seasons shared with everyone involved. From everyone at the restaurant, security workers, volunteers at the stadium to the medical & office staff and all the rest you have made my time what it was. The coaches and most of all my teammates, I can only say thank you!!!, “
” The Pozzo family for believing in me and the important 5 years of my career at both clubs with the highlight the promotion and a chance to achieve my boyhood dream of playing in the Premier League. “
” To all the fans thank you for your support, it has been special going from watching as a boy to stepping on the pitch as a player. As now a fan again I wish for promotion just as much as all of you and will be back watching from the stands in the future. “
All the best,
As reported earlier today Ekong will join Salernitana from Watford FC in the winter transfer window as the Italian Serie A club bolsters it’s rank in a bid to beat the drop.
