Ignacio Pussetto arrived at Watford from Udinese in January 2020 and was brought in to help the club avoid being relegated from the Premier League during the 2019/20 season.

The forward was restricted to less than 70 minutes across seven substitute appearances in the league.

The Hornets dropped to the Championship last season and in the summer of 2020, they allowed the 25-year-old to return to the Italian club on a loan deal. Although Watford returned to the top flight, Pussetto was allowed to rejoin Udinese on another loan deal in July.

Argentine sports newspaper Olé interviewed the Watford owned player and asked what saw him join the English club.

“When I had to go to England, I did it because I didn’t have a good time with the coach [Igor Tudor], here in Italy. I needed a change of air in order to find myself as a person and as a player,” he said.

“Then, sometime later, the new Udinese coach [Luca Gotti] called me, made me make the decision to return. In addition, our son was born and we know that Udine is a very quiet city to be able to raise him. We are very happy.”

Pussetto first arrived in Europe when Udinese took him from Argentine side Club Atlético Huracán in 2018. Although Boca Juniors loved him, the attacker admits there wasn’t any concrete possibility to join them.

When quizzed if he had a chance to return to Argentina in the summer, Pussetto said: “Boca, no. Racing called me, but I want to continue here. I had the opportunity to speak, always with a very good disposition.

“Although my idea is still to stay and not come back. We will see if later everything is given to return. Today, the reality is that I am very happy here.”
