Stefano Okaka has certainly had something of a varied career, with many stops along the way.
Coming through at AS Roma, he went on five different loans from the Italian club, including one to Fulham. He ended up signing for Parma, his fifth loan club, on a permanent basis, but then that didn’t go great and led to a loan at Spezia.
Then followed spells at Sampdoria and Anderlecht before Okaka signed for Watford on a permanent deal towards the end of the summer 2016 transfer window.
He joined Udinese in the last winter market on loan until the end of the season and it doesn’t sound like he fancies returning to the Hornets.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport he’s been asked why he left the Premier League club, and explained: “I wouldn’t want to talk about Watford anymore. Anyway, I say: I play against Liverpool and score an important goal. The following week I do not play. That’s enough.”
The Italian newspaper then asked what happens when he doesn’t play, and Okaka said: “I get angry, the day I stop getting angry, I’ll stop.”
Asked what bothers him right now in the life of a footballer, the 29 year old said: “The lack of respect exercised by those who have power over you.”
There seems to be some lingering irritation here.
