Watford defender Marc Navarro says he is finding happiness ‘in the small moments’ after a frustrating two years for him professionally.

Navarro joined Spanish side Leganés on loan last summer after a frustrating two years at Vicarage Road so far.

He joined Watford for £1.8m from Espanyol back in July 2018 but struggled in his one year at the club, managing just five appearances in all competitions.

It’s been a similar frustrating period for him back in Spain, with injury issues limiting him to just six appearances for the club all season.

That has obviously not been ideal for the 24-year-old, who says he is now finding his happiness elsewhere.

“Sometimes we think that we will be happy when we have this or that…” he told AS.

“In the end, you realize that happiness is the little moments. Everything looks different when you grow up.

“Just the fact of eating with your family or having a good time with friends, things like that give you happiness.”

Whether Navarro can find any sort of happiness at Watford remains to be seen, although it seems extremely unlikely.

He’ll probably be hoping for a permanent departure if he can get one and certainly seems happy at his current club.

“It is a club where they wrap you up,” he added.

“It is a small family, yes. It is what I like the most. That humility, that work, that feeling, that good vibes that are in everything. It is a pleasure.”
