Watford To Investigate Nigerian Striker For Arguing With Teammate After Chelsea LossPublished: May 16, 2017
Watford coach Walter Mazzarri will investigate an argument between strikers Stefano Okaka and Troy Deeney after their entertaining 4-3 loss to champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
The Italy international of Nigerian descent equalized for the Hornets in the 74th minute (3-3), but the visitors were denied a draw when Cesc Fabregas netted the winner with two minutes left on the clock.
''I felt we could have won the game. It didn't happen so we were all very nervous, '' Mazzarri said.
"They are friends, they are always together and they joke with each other, nobody told me anything.
''I want players that have character that talk to each other on the pitch and off. Tomorrow I will investigate, but I don't think it was nothing."
Okaka came off the bench in the 71st minute before Super Eagles invitee Ola Aina joined him on the pitch four minutes later, his first appearance for Chelsea at any level since February 24.
