Following a knee injury at the start of the year, Ignacio Pussetto is currently working on his long recovery.
Loaned by Watford to Udinese, the player only managed to make 15 appearances for the Italian side, and now has a big doubt about where he shall play in the future.
Pussetto has an interview featured on Gazzetta dello Sport, and talked about how things have been going for him in Serie A.
First speaking of his injury, he confirmed that he’s only playing again next season.
“The recovery is going well. I started running. My right knee responds well. I won’t be able to play the last few games of this league, but I’ll be ready for the next one,” said Pussetto (via Tutto Udinese).
Perhaps that’s the reason why he claims he’d be keen on staying at Udinese for longer, even though he knows he shouldn’t be the only one in charge of his future.
“I really hope so. I’m not the one who decides, but I’d like to stay here. The path taken by Udinese is the right one. Now four finals await us. Against Turin, Crotone, Cagliari and Benevento we have to score points.”
When speaking of Udinese, the player also revealed his preference for the Italian league.
“There’s everything, excellent facilities, it was my first European stop and I immediately felt at ease. I play with friends, I feel like I’m with my family. Udine reminds me so much of my hometown, Canada Rosquin. And a quiet city and the club is well organised. And I prefer Serie A to Premier League, even if Watford can go back. I always follow them on TV.”
Speaking of Udinese manager Luca Gotti, Pussetto made a little comparison with former Watford manager Nigel Pearson.
“In London Nigel Pearson always played the same 11. Here, Gotti, is someone with whom you can also talk about things from normal life. A great person, Udinese found the right coach.”
